How much do you want to spend?
6000-the sky
I believe the last one offers the best video editing with WinXP.

Well its for a project.
We are a couple of guys doing an independant short movie, with some graphic effects and all.

And its serious.
The price really dont matter, as long as its not above 10k.

Need something with stablity, functionality and ya, the "best" allaround.

I use a program called pinnacle studio 9. It is rather easy to use but because of its ease you get less choices on what you can do to video's.

I also use Adobe Premiere pro wich is near limitless on what it can do, but because of that it can be difficult to use.

The Apple Macintosh is the best platform for video editing — Final Cut Pro 5 is quite phenomenal. On the other hand, professional also use Adobe Premiere Pro with Microsoft Windows.

I've just been on the Apple Store. You can buy an Apple Power Mac G5 Dual 2.7 GHz computer (with a few upgrades: more RAM, bigger hard disk drive etc), an Apple Cinema HD Display (30" flat panel) and Final Cut Pro 5 for just over $7000. That would, quite frankly, be the ultimate video editing system! You would have a huge display coupled with an ultra-fast computer and an award-winning piece of video editing software.

we use pinnacle studio 9 at work (school) it's mainly for sixth form students (aged 16-18) but there are a lot of advanced features which would be fine by the sounds of what you're doing. it's not expensive either.

It depends on what you want...

I do a lot of editing and I will use several different programs depending on my output requirements. I will use ULED and Pinnacle 9.4 if I want reasonable quality without a lot of screwin' around. These are good for simple tasks like editing out commercials from recorded TV. I will use DVD DECRYPTER and DVD shrink for editing copyright disks (for personal use only).

But if I want good quality and I have some heavy editing to do I will use mostly Adobe, but as mentioned above, Adobe can be difficult to use because of its complication level.
