I'm not sure if newegg ships to australia, but this would be a good video editing/rendering build.

If you're using adobe CS5 it supports gpu accelerated rendering but only with nvidia cards, so a GTX 460 or 560 might be better.

Pretty good build for a media editing/gaming computer. I'd throw in an aftermarket heatsink for some overclocking and, well, I support blishdot's suggestion

if your looking for a browser pc and or business use just get the following and throw it together yourself
Intel Core i5-2300 189.99
Asus P8H67-M PRO 104.99
Western Digital Caviar Black (WD1002FAEX) 89.99
Corsair XMS3 Classic 4GB (TW3X4G1333C9A) 49.99
Antec TruePower New TP-550 69.99
COOLER MASTER Elite 341 39.99
(N82E16827136178) LG dvd burner 24X 19.99
Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit oem 99.99

works out to be 664.92 saving you about $200 off the ebay add since the ebay one doesn't come with a valid copy of windows, plus the prices i have here are from a local pc shop where i live so Canadian prices.
Depending where you live it is potentially cheaper also if you want to throw in the i7 2600 its about a extra $100 and for a total of 8GB of ram add another $40 or so.
the advantage of going with what i choose is your guaranteed to actually have quality parts as for the ebay ad he properly has a no name power supply, low quality memory and a no name cd-rom all which will most likely die rather quickly.
edit:
and me not paying attention to the complete post about video rendering and such, its properly more beneficial to go with the 2600 or the 2600k for a small bit more and a gtx 460 for the video card, depending which programs you use to encode, the encoding could be done by the video card instead of the cpu and that card can be found for about 120-150 new, adding the 2600k and video card would push it to about $920.

Amazon still sells i7 2600k to my knowledge

for a p67 mobo go to overclockers.uk.co

p67 boards are still for sale in the UK and they will ship it DHL to your doorstep...if you are willing to pay a little extra to have a p67 set up just ship it back to the manufacture when the new boards come out, call windows and have them issue you a new oem keycode under the grounds that your motherboard was replaced for warranty purposes and all should be good in the world.

since you arent doing any gaming then id suggest getting a single pci x16 slot mobo (which run cheaper) and then invest in a good GPU. GTX500 series would be great. add a 750 watt psu and you should be golden. case is irrelevant, misc stuff is irrelevant.

id do this:

Generic case
i7 2600k
Intel BLKDP67DE P67 (http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showpr...=5&subcat=1906)
GTX500 series
16-32 GB DDR3 1600 RAM
750 watt psu (80 plus certified and PFC or PCF <---idk which one it is)
1TB 7200rpm HD
Generic DVD drive

Okay, I think I've found a suitable build for a good price.

Ram: G.Skill F3-12800CL9T-6GBNQ (3x2GB) DDR3

Processor: Intel Core i5 2500

Motherboard: ASUS P8P67-M PRO Motherboard

Case: CoolerMaster Centurion 5 II Black (No PSU)

HDD: Hitachi Deskstar 7K1000 1TB 7200RPM

PSU: CoolerMaster eXtreme Power Plus 650W

DVD Drive: Lite-On IHAS524 24x DVDRW Super AllWrite

All for $790 (Inc $44 Postage). What do you guys think? Any improvements needed or go with that? Graphics card will probably be bought when I have more money

It's not bad really.

The only thing you should be aware of is that all P67 chipsets are faulty. You can either send it into the manufacturer (Asus) for repair, or you can simply plug your HDD into the SATA III port instead of SATA II.

For the price, I think that's a good build. Personally though, I'd buy another 6GB of the same model RAM for your video editing. Media editing takes up a lot of memory.

But beyond that, I'd say go for it

1.Drop the triple channel memory search for DUAL channel kit because sandybridge is not optimized for triple channel kit of ram
2.Opt for i7 (much better at rendering graphics and videos)
3.Dont slack on a videocard

i think thats good other than that

I think he's searching up prebuilt PCs (correct me if I'm wrong).

And for video editing, I don't think a GPU is necessary

please also remember when purchasing a P67 series board, there is no onboard graphics, so if you bought that set up you would have no way of firing it up without a graphics card lol.
