I have an old Gateway PC266 with 386MB of SDRAM and nvidia 30MB of a graphic card. I keep it uptodate and have been changig stuff in it. Running WinXP Pro with Service pack-2 No problem here. When I convert my analogue video taps to make a Video DVD, the re-coding takes hours for an 1/2 hour video. I am thinking of buying a DVD camcorder which uses 8cm DVD-R & + R media and then burn the footage to a regular DVD media using NERO 6. My second choice will to build a new computer arround P4 with 1 GB of DDR2 RAMS with a huge Hard Drive. Any sggestion please?
