Ok! here is the problem, I bought this computer about 4 days ago
Computer: http://www.frys.com/product/7717418?source=googleps&gclid=CNqskKXVx7sCFQISMwodCmkA_Q

but it showed me the Blue screen of the death, also it overheats and works kind of slow so i will return it and ask for a full refund and I would like to know if I can get a better computer with that money ($500) or build it, if so, could you guys help me out telling me where can i get a better computer or where can i buy it and how to build a better computer than that one with $500 budget.

I will use it for some video editing and some light gaming as well

I would really appreciate it.

Thank you!

Do you need Windows OS? Or do you have your own disc somewhere?

If you don't need an OS, and if you are okay with mail in rebates, this is what I came up with

It's $491 and it has about the strength of a PS4
