I feel an ouch coming!

I'll probably have about $1,000 in the camcorder I am researching....so I'll probably want to keep my computer budget around $1300 or less. The company I work for has a deal with Dell, so there's an option. But I hear that Dell uses cheaper parts. I have also heard that the fans are really loud.

$1,300 is a LOOOOOOOT with today's prices. Computers are cheap.
I don't want to talk about the brand, because, in many cases, it's a matter of personal opinion.
Personally, I'm HP/Compaq guy.

I don't know, when you're planning to buy the machine, but, if you buy any Vista computer after July 1st (I believe), you're gonna get free upgrade to Windows 7, when it comes out. Also with Vista, you'll have a perfect practice for Win 7, since they look/feel very similar.
I can give some general idea about what you need, and I'm pretty sure, some others will chime in:
- dual core processor
- 2GB of RAM minimum
- 500GB hard drive
- PCIExpress video card with 512MB of RAM (not on-board video)
You should be good to go.
