You don’t need a new monitor but it would be ideal to have an HD external monitor.
Your PC should be able to handle HD. Simply cutting HD video isn’t that demanding. I’m sure 2GB of RAM would be fine.
There are a lot of editing suites that are capable of handling HD now. I use Final Cut Studio. Comes with an Authoring Program too, but you use a PC, so you can use FCS. Look into Adobe Premier.
For output you want a blu-ray burner. Blu-ray won the HD DVD vs Blu-Ray conflict. The standard will be Blu-Ray.
