For video editing alone a dual core intel cpu is the best(much as i hate to say) If you use it for other things and like to play the odd game a AMD x2 would be a good bet they are also cheaper than the intels. Get a stacker and 11 dvd burners to make lots of dvds that would be a funny sight to see.

ok i used a computer in a video editing class that had a 700mhz processor and 256 ram. it ran fine kind of slow so you don't need anything that special. But if you can afford it it will make a difference i reccomend a program from avid. They make great video software. Universal uses avid as they softwarefor making movies. It is the best but hard to use. Get a book to learn all the tricks.

For the hardware i would recommend something powered by AMD -much cheaper and larger harddrives as well as a great video card...how much of a budget do you have?

Yeah for modern video editing with 3d effects and such a newer computer is required. For really simple editing a slower computer is ok. But if you want modern effects and such and to do it quickly with good resolutions you will need a fairly powerful PC. With lots of RAM 2GB for a bit of speed and at least two hard drives.

the class i took was last year all digital cameras high end 3d it ws slow doing things but you can get away with 512ram and a P4 or amd 3200
if you can afford the 2gig ram and better harddrive will go better but not necessary if on a budget.
