Default New to Video editing / slow pc

Just picked up a Gopro 3 silver and I have been shooting some test footage to learn how to use it and to edit. I have zero video editing knowledge. I have been using Windows movie maker and I got a copy of Magix movie edit pro plus but it seems like they both are very slow.

My pc is a windows xp box, fresh install with intel 4 prescott 3.8 and 2.5 gb of ram. I have a separate pci express video card that came with it. Is this system too under powered to edit video or am i doing something wrong?

I have been shooting video in 720, 60fps. Then I have been converting the gopro files from mpg4 to avi to import into movie maker.

Any help is appreciated.
