    After buying a digital videocamera (Sony PC8),
    I need a new computer to edit the take.

    Being a newbee I'm probably starting out with
    Ulead Video Studio 6.

    Ulead recommend 128 or more ram, so I'm wondering
    if I need to spring with the extra £100 for one Gb. ram
    instead of 512 Mb.

    Will the extra 512 Mb ram make me £100 more happy
    when I edit the video? :)

    Before I order the PC, I'd love it, if anyone has comments
    about my configuration

    Motherboard: Gigabyte 8IEXP
    Processor: Intel Pentium 4 Northwood 2.26Ghz, FSB 533MHz
    Videocard: Asus V8420-TD, Geforce4, Ti-4200, 128 DDR
    Harddisk: 2 Seagate IDE 80GB Barracuda IV
    Ram: 1 or 2 Kingston 512 MB DDR RAM 2100
    DVD: Asus DVD-E616 (Apparently regions can be easily reset)

    You havnt said what operating system you are using. If you are using Win9x/ME then the answer is no (you may even notice a slight decrease in performance). If you are using XP/2000/NT then probaly.

    - video editing is memory/hard disk hungry!

    I recently configured my computer for editing too.
    my config is
    Pentium 4 2.26GHz, 533Mhz, 512K CPU
    P4b533 ASUS motherboard with intel 845E chipset
    IBM 80GB 7200RPM DTLA HDD (seek time 8.3 - 8.5msec)
    256MB, 333MHz DDRAM (512 would be good, 1 GB is very good)
    Geforce 4 64MB DDR 8170 from ASUS (video card is not all that important)
    Plextor 40X12X40X CD-RW
    Firewire Card
    Windows XP Pro

    Its good to have a seperate HDD for your OS as mentioned earlier by experienced professionals in the forum.
    Windows XP will allow you to have larger dowloads and doesn't have the 4 GB limit if the HDD is in NTFS file system.
