Well heres the advised specs for using adobe premiere elements
Here are Adobe's suggested minimums:

• Processor: Intel® Pentium® 4, M, D or Extreme Edition or AMD Opteron OR Athlon 64 (SSE2 Support Required)
• Operating System: Microsoft® Windows® XP Professional, Home Edition, or Media Center Edition with Service Pack 2
• Screen Resolution: 1024X768 16bit (XGA)
• RAM: 512 MB for DV and 1 GB for HDV
• Hard Disk (Apps & Content): 4 GB of available hard-disk space for installation
• Multimedia Technology: Microsoft DirectX 9 compatible sound and display drivers
• Interface/Peripherals: DV/i.LINK/FireWire/IEEE 1394 interface to connect a Digital 8 or DV camcorder or USB2 interface with a compatible DV via USB DV camcorder. Other video devices supported via Media Downloader

Our early experience is that (with the exception of HDV editing) version 3 will work on virtually any system that runs version 2 -- and, in fact, may even work more efficiently. That said, we're posting similar "real world" recommendations for version 3, although these may be updated as we get reports from the field.

Our recommended minimums
• Pentium 4 or Celeron 2.6 ghz or Athlon64 3200 or Opteron processor
• 1 gigabyte of RAM
• 64 mb video card, ideally Radeon or Geforce technology
• 100 gigabyte hard drive (This allows plenty of room for captured footage and scratch disk space)
• An ASIO (Audio Stream Input/Output) supported sound card
• DVD burner (DVD-R, DVD+R or DVD+/-R – standalone player compatibility is now virtually the same for all formats)
• 17” monitor set to 1024x768 display
• IEEE-1394/FireWire/iLink, cable and MiniDV or Digital8 camcorder or digitizing device (e.g., the ADS Pyro AV Link) capable of capturing DV-AVI files

Even better
• Pentium D 3.0 ghz or Athlon64 Dual Core 4200
• 2 gigabytes of RAM
• 128 mb video card, ideally Radeon or Geforce technology
• Second hard drive, dedicated to video files, 160 gigabytes are larger
• DVD burner (Dual-layer models can burn 4.7 or 8.5 gig disks)
• 1152x864 19” monitor running 32-bit color
• IEEE-1394/FireWire/iLink, cable and MiniDV or Digital8 camcorder or digitizing device (e.g., the ADS Pyro AV Link) capable of capturing DV-AVI files
