Video Editing System Questions

What system requirements would you recommend for a digital editing system. Possilby looking to convert some old VHS home videos to DVD or VCD and eventually hook up a digital video camera and edit film from it. Also what software would you recommend?

Thanks,
Jon Lord

Are you looking for a system to buy and use or what you have already? IMHO, this is what a Mac actually is better for with their specially designed processors. You can do amazing video editing with fast compile times and quick rendering and so forth. But you want to get a fast processor with lots of RAM, and definately a huge HD. Probably at least 40 GB storage, maybe 512 MB RAM, and over a GHZ for PC or any G4 with the macs.
