Chris, it depends on what you’re editing, and what your budget is. I upgraded to HD (and AVCHD) in November. I wanted to get a new system, and I wanted to stay under 1K. Not possible, I learned. But I DID stay under 2K, got a fast, clean system (custom built by a company that specializes in video systems..and they’re local to me). I only do short, business videos, and the system has performed way better than I was told it would. Do shop around. For me, it was worth having a shop that would build and support a system that is exclusively for video.
