If your doing just about any kind of editing you should be fine. Any computer bought these days will edit DV and most will edit HDV. the new computer my roomate got can handle HDV, uncompressed HD, uncompressed SD with a color correction filter and a video layer on top of that (no real-time card installed)
Buy what you can afford but don't break the bank. These days its not 'can it work' but how long will you wait for renders....and even on a slow computer that isn't very long. Not having quality lights, cameras or mics will impact your productions more than an extra 5 minutes to render.
I started with NLEs in 98 when my first computer was an AMD K6-2 350Mhz with just 128mb ram. It worked just fine then, even in YUV 10mb/sec mode, so you should be just fine for mini-DV and similar formats.
