Well, if you're serious about video editing, Powermac is the only option.

Yes, powermacs are better for video editing, but a display is important in order to take advantage of a computer's power.
SO, with your apparent budget of $2500, get the iMac. You don't have enough cash budgeted to get a Powermac with the configuration options you'd really want to get. A fully loaded iMac is the most computer for your money (and it has its own screen!)

Good luck!
