Cool good luck and have fun with it, getting the video is only 1\2 the battle editing it on the other hand is the hard and time consuming part!

ive got 12gbs of ram with the new intel quad core i7 and it still gets a little choppy for me at times but whenever i finishing editing it comes out smooth. i also updated my firmware right off the bat with the new HD2 so maybe there was something wrong with the video before that.

Possibly because the software hasn't finished rendering the preview yet? That'd be my best guess, which will happen even with 16gbs of ram and a lightning fast processor...

.....which is helpful but less important than the video hardware on your rig and whether your video player is doing hardware or software decoding.

I have a 5.5 year old laptop which can still play 1080p clips that skip like hell on some newer machines... and itdefinitely doesn't have 8GB or 3.0 GHz

VLC does software decoding only, to my knowledge? That will tax your system harder.
