All the footage in this video was recorded with the amazing Sony HVR-CX150 camcorder. The 1920x1080i HD at 24mbps video is easily edited with Sony Vegas Pro 10 on a Windows 7 64 bit PC and an Intel Core i3 processor. This combination yields amazing HD quality for very little investment. The AVCHD long GOP codec is incredibly efficient but takes a powerful system to edit smoothly. The 64 bit system is the key which allows Vegas 10 and Windows 7 to work together crunching the AVCHD video. A Core i-7 would yield double the streams for rendering but the i3 is enough to make this edit system enjoyable and productive. You can see from the performance graphs at the end of the video that the processor is only cooking along at about 75% for editing and 4 gigabytes of memory are adequate. When rendering in WMV the cores are maxed out and that's where a Core i7 would be helpful. Another aspect is heat. An i3 processor is drawing only about 75 watts and the graphics card is built into the Gigabyte motherboard so it's not drawing any extra power. A 450watt power supply is fine for this setup. Sony Vegas 10 allows CUDA processing but that's for an auxiliary graphics card that's going to draw more power and make more heat.
