Most name brand workstations are of decent quality, we use Dell, HP, Lenovo, with good success overall. Make sure you have a version of Windows that supports joining a domain, the "Home" versions do not.

We use commercial Lenovo desktop computers (and laptops) at all our clients. We find these to be top of class.

For what you want, any modern commercial Lenovo desktop with Windows 7 Pro 64-bit or Windows 8.1 Pro 64-bit, 2.5GHz CPU or better, 8GB of memory or better, and high speed (7,200 or 10,000 rpm) hard drive should do the trick. Such a machine will be $1,000 give or take depending on sales plus Monitor to suit you.

>>   he will be using video files to play and edit them   <<   i would suggest  at least 8 GB ram, or even 16 GB
and if budgetwise possible - have an SSD drive; depending on your stockage needs - use a 256 Gb or 512 GB SSD, and have an external drive  of 3 -4 TB for storage
