    -intel mobo D845EPT2 533 fsb
    -2 512/mb ram pc2700

    For video editing you should definetly go for a amd 64bit proc.

    Your ram is ok, would be better at pc3200 or above but if you dont want to buy more ram then that is ok.

    Get a new gfx card, all in wonder 9600xt or above.

    I would think you will need a bigger hard drive seen as you are doing video editing so a 160gig or 200gig 7200rpm would be good.

    newegg.com has some great prices on these products although you are going to need alot of money.

    Giva a visit to The ultimate dream Computer thread for some more ideas on what to get and prices.
