The reservation I have about speed is the digital video editing if my
daughter (and mine) interest takes off, she's quite keen on that sort of

The trouble is I know zilch about what processing power and what sort of
GPU is required for that - and hoping to keep something that will be
useable over say a 3-4 year timescale don't want to be forced into an
upgrade due to escalating demands.

to "scale" a problem...
