    Depends on your preference. Personally, I'd recommend Adobe Premiere. I'm assuming you're from the US (because you didn't put canadian or australian before "$" :-P) So it should cost you about $90-$100 if you shop around.

    As for stopping it dropping frames, make sure your hard drive is defragmented. Ideally, you should have two hard drives in your PC - one for the OS, one for video capturing.

    The best format to capture as if you're going to be fiddling around with the file a lot is DV format, you can download a windows codec from here:
