    I am computer illiterate, can run & use general programs but dont understand the technical jargon and have the following system (Belarc Advisor Info):- Intel Celeron 667MHz, 20Gb HDD, 256MB pc133 SDRAM, FDD, 52x32x52 CDRW, Windows 98SE, Broadband ADSL. My question today is: Can I upgrade to Windows XP Home Edn? Can I put in a DVD Burner? Can I put in an AV Capture Card? I would like to transfer Analog Video Camera Tapes to DVD including editing etc. Could someone please advise what extra memory, hard drive space, processor speed i would need? Thanks.

    Can you upgrade to XP Home?
    yes, it will most likely run but will seem pretty slow considering the cpu / amount of ram you have.

    Can you install a DVD burner ?
    Absolutely, should run just fine with what you have.

    Can I put in an AV Capture Card?
    Most likely yes, but considering the amount of cpu speed/ram you have, I don't think it will function very well. ( I am not up on video capturing etc..)
    any converting of video to DVD require lots of cpu / memory ( the more, the merrier)

    I can offer many suggestions of what you should get, but I have no idea what budget you're on.

    2.5 Ghz or faster
    1 gig memory
    80 gig + ( the bigger the better )

    good luck
