Re: Please recommend a great custom built computer place?

Buy it off Newegg, put it together yourself.

I was in the same boat as you 6 years ago--intimidated by building myself and convinced it was only for overclockers and extreme modders.

I built my own almost 4 years ago and haven't looked back. Since then, I have helped half a dozen friends and family build their own computers. This includes men in their 50s who haven't done anything beyond installing RAM, to 14 year olds who have never touched a computer beyond the keyboard and mouse.

If you EVER played with legos, you can put a computer together.

For you, it would be best to buy the parts off Newegg and put them together yourself. If your video converting program is multi-threaded, I'd suggest an i5 or i7 Ivy Bridge, Z77 motherboard for starters.
