Desktop specification

  Lennie boy 09:20 13 Sep 2005

I want to buy a new base unit for home use. I want to use it soley for both image editing and storing my many albums as i have done on previous computers. Also i want to now connect my digital camcorder and my vcr machine to the computer to enable me to capture and edit my years of taped video so that i can burn them on to DVDs & give to all the family. To keep costs practical could someone help me please with the specification i should look for without going over the top?
Many thanks

Any modern processor - eg 2800+

Plenty of RAM - say 1024mb

Couple of large hard disks - say 200GB each

Standard graphics card

A decent monitor for images - say £250

The base unit should come in at about £450
