Hey fellas, been lurking for a bit, trying to read up and learn about the best way to start capturing some tapes.

I've got a few hundred tapes (VHS and Video8) of fan-recorded rock shows from the late 80s-early 90s. I plan on ripping them to MPEG and then storing them on some external hard drives (for archival purposes) and then using a separate computer with a BD+RW to burn them to Bluray disks (for viewing on a TV).

I'm wondering if a computer built to these specs will be able to do that:
  • Motherboard: ASRock 775i65G
  • CPU: Core 2 Duo E8400
  • Memory: 2GB DDR400
  • Storage: 2TB Seagate
  • Capture Card: ATI AIW 9600
  • Sound Card: Turtle Beach Santa Cruz
  • Power Supply: Corsair CV450

Any comments or suggestions would be appreciated.
