      what do you think? (and while looking at the listing they do not list official warranty - because my credit card doubles it ... asking seller - but any ideas? )
      better than same from newegg

      which is non-returnable and non-refundable
      right?
      OR IS THIS

      better?
      thank you
      IN FULL:
      I need to put up a Win PC to upload videos via FTP
      and
      then RDC - Remote Desktop Connect from another country
      to render some videos with Adobe Premiere CC ...
      what's a good place to buy one?
      ===========================
      * I will put an SSD if it doesn't come with one
      * and I will add more RAM from crucial.com
      (no need for a CD drive ...)
      this will be for casual work
      so speed is not that important ...
      so I will NOT even add any video card to help rendering
      I want to spend as much as needed but as least as possible ... in other words the less the better ... nothing fancy ... least that would get the job done ...
      I guess my #1 objective is
      CPU # of cores - 4 will do 8 is best and Intel Xeon is prefered as per https://www.pugetsystems.com/labs/articles/Adobe-Premiere-Pro-CC-Multi-Core-Performance-69 8/
      CPU L2 Cache size
      WHERE TO BUY ONE?
