$400-$500 Budget Video Edting Build

I have some builds I made a while back on pcpartpicker, but I wanted to see what the community has to offer on their opinions. Currently using a 4 year old Toshiba Satellite L755 Laptop (Pentium Dual-Core 2Ghz Cpu, 4Gb RAM, integrated graphics). Programs I use HitFilm 3, LightWorks, and Gimp.

I have many harddrives lying around that were barely used, so you don't have to include one.

No disk drive needed either

Include Keyboard & mice and a Windows Operating System (Also if you know a place to get the OS cheap leave a link below as well.)

I dont have a specific part list, but a good starting point would be a fx 8320E for around $120. AM3+ motherboards are fairly cheap, you can also find 16gb of RAM for around $60

No mail in rebates. Overclockable if you decide to add an aftermarket cpu cooler later.

It's against website policy to share links for cheap Windows licenses, due to the questionable legality of it. That being said, here you go. It's a little over budget, sorry.
