If you need Final Cut Pro, then you really don't have much of an option other than to get a Mac....You could Hackintosh, but you lose most of the advantages of OS X by doing so, not to mention you're not guaranteed compatibility with future updates. 

 

If you don't really need Final Cut, then: 

 
CPU: Intel Core i7-6700K 4.0GHz Quad-Core Processor  ($434.99 @ Newegg Canada) 
Motherboard: ASRock Z170M Pro4S Micro ATX LGA1151 Motherboard  ($135.50 @ Vuugo) 
Memory: Avexir Core Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-2400 Memory  ($70.98 @ Newegg Canada) 
Storage: Sandisk X400 128GB M.2-2280 Solid State Drive  ($39.99 @ Memory Express) 
Video Card: MSI Radeon RX 480 8GB Video Card  ($329.99 @ NCIX) 
Case: Cooler Master N200 MicroATX Mid Tower Case  ($54.70 @ Vuugo) 
Power Supply: XFX TS 550W 80+ Gold Certified ATX Power Supply  ($84.43 @ Amazon Canada) 
Total: $1276.28
Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available

It seems unusual that Cryorig doesn't exist at all in Canada. I would have suggested the H7 but no Canada retailer appears to sell it.

I could've sworn I saw an h7, but it was over $50.

The added cost usually isn't worthwhile.

Yeah. Swapping out the graphics card will be very easy, and the next few generations of Intel should support the newest motherboard type, so you could do a CPU upgrade too.

Yes, switching out parts in premade is typically easy (although I've seen a couple that make it hard by their interior design).

Yeah, but that would most likely be big companies like HP, Dell and the like. The prebuilts we're talking about here were made by a shop so they use the kind of parts a person would buy to build their own pc.

Here's what I did:

Bought one of these used: http://shop.lenovo.com/us/en/desktops/ideacentre/k-series/k450/

Upgraded ram

Upgraded processor (quad core i5, 3.1ghz beast)

Threw in old graphics card

 

Boom: moderate PC.
