In your apparent price range, and for multithreaded work like video editing, I have to admit that your choice is hard to beat. The closest Intel competition would be this Gateway. Here is roughly how they compare.

The G530 is a decent amount slower than a G620. I know you know that, just wanting to make sure the OP knows which way "roughly" is trending.

I'd say that the AMD is indeed a very good option for ~$400.
