NEED HELP! with config for AVCHD video editing

Hi Guys!

I have simple request. I need to buy a new desktop PC for AVCHD video editing. I will be using the CANON HF G10 to shoot and will be editing 1 - 30 min videos for uploading on the web. Some effects but not heavy. I put all my $ into the Camera equipment so my budge is tight at the moment. I will most likely be using Sony Vegas 9 or 10.

Below is the link to the configuration I would like to purchase:

1) Please let me know if it will do the job without stuttering.
2) If not, can you please suggest a configuration that will work for me?

Thanks!

    great graphics card--you can get software that leverages your graphics card to speed up

    video conversion--i would have thought maybe a gtx550 or 560 would be better
