A very fast computer (Core 2 Quad or Core 2 Extreme) with lots of RAM.
Seriously, I edit MTS files (1080i) in Vegas 8 Pro on a Core 2 Duo laptop with 2GB RAM and it stutters some.
If money were no object, I’d get the biggest, fastest gaming machine around, load it up with lots of RAID5 or RAID6 disk space (5TB or more), the most RAM that will fit, latest version of 64 bit OS and see how that works!
There are different video formats for HD such as .avi .mkv H264 etc.
For every separate format you will need separate codec as a software.
And hardware requirements depends on software codec.
