Default Video Editing Machine

Hey guys, my friend is looking to spend about $500 on computer parts for his new system used mainly for editing video using adobe premiere, the parts he will buy are as follows:

case with power supply
gpu
cpu
motherboard
ram
harddrive
and firewire card

Can you recomend hardware that will be good for editing film?
Thanks in advance.

well he will definitely want a dual core for video editinng. on a budget of $500 i guess he would be forced to use a Pentium D. i don't know US prices very well but i guess a Pentium D 920/930 would fit into that budget. even the cheapest dual cores will beat the most extreme single cores in video work. don't bother with a firewire card just get a motherboard that has it integrated. for video work 2gb of ram would be desirable but i don't think that will fit the budget so look at 1gb. you won't really need name brand ram so just get valueram.
