just get a video card.. like a 9600 pro or something from ati, that'll make you're graphics a ton better.. other than that.. your whole system could probably use an overhaul with high quality hardware

i would say just add another 256 with the one you already have. just get the same kind and all. also, you should have goten a p4 because the are beter for video editing, but what ever floats your boat, roles your enchilada, toots your horn, ect. if you have the money go with the gig, but a gig of ram is ussauly used for gamers. it's your pc, what ever fits and goes with what you need and can aford, nock your self out

You definitely don't need a gig of ram... even for most gamers it's a waste of moeny.

For straight DVD copying an 8x burner will help... If you need to re encode the media because it wont fit on 1 disk then a faster processor (p4's are best).
For video editing 1gb of ram and lots of hard disk space are good to have.
Pentium 4 2.8 with M0 stepping.
Only air cooling tho
