I would recommend starting with Premiere Elements, version 7 preferably.
Second choice would be Vegas Movie Studio, you can always go to Vegas Pro later.
If you find a need to go to the pro versions you will only have spent about $70 and gotten a lot of experience that will make the move a lot easier.
