maybe...2 gig processor, or more as a lot of processing might be needed for the dvd conversion. 512 ddr ram possibly enough. A firewire card for input from your dv to pc. Large harddrive 80gig works for me as you need to store the video. Good graphics card, a radeon 9600? more ram your gfx card has the better. Possible price range, would be 600+ i think.
