I am completely new to video editing and want to learn. I was looking at the Adobe product but did not know which one to get. Below is a spec sheet on the basics of my CPU. It does not have a firewire port, but that is in the works soon. I want to create a high quality editing and DVD product for myself inititaly, and may want to make it a career . Anyway you got to start somewhere.
here is my system:
