for dv only .... any iee1394 card will do.
from users arround here , most suggest pyro cards. http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/B00004Y2P4/ref%3Ded%5Fart%5F161191%5Ftxt%5F1/026-0233352-4717225
they cost a lot less than 200.00

or for 200.00 http://www.lynxdv.com/product.php?name=platinum&country=

if you want hardware acceleration of dv effects , you will have to pay a lot more than 200.00 unless you buy secondhand.

your pc spec is fine for editting , only thing missing is whether you have a second hard drive for all the video footage?

p.s. we don't mention kazaa (lite or full ) round here , as there is always a 'less than legal' implication with it.
