    It should do it as long as it's SD video you are working with. Personally I would have liked a faster processor but with a dual core you should have enough, just don't expect lightning speed if you use a lot of effects and transitions in your videos. The 160GB Hard Drive may fill up very quickly aswell and you will need an external drive so you can free up space on the 160, if you plan to do a lot of work.

    well it's enough for basic editing (not too complicated, or too large projects).
    i suggest u install xp instead of vista if u intend to use it for editing, cause vista by itself uses lots of ram and for editing u needs almost every bit available.
