vhs ---> dvd, advice needed


I am looking to convert my vhs tapes to dvd and am seeking advice on what to get for a video/vid capture card as well as software that will allow for editing/voice over/music/fade etc. I don't really have a budget in mind for this. If I go ahead with something like this, I'll be building a new box, cause I doubt my K6/2 350 will cut it (the wife has the xp1700+ and the kids have the duron 700). My vcr is pretty basic, stereo, rca in/out, no svideo.

Any advice on hardware/software or how to's would be appreciated.

Thanks

Software: The only software I've actually enjoyed using and worked with sucessfully is Dazzle MainActor.
Virtual Dub has mis-aligned the sound on anything I've edited.

Hardware: Leadtek Winfast TV2000XP Works like a charm and imports in "ready-to-burn" DVD quality

I don't have any experience with DVD-RW drives so somebody else will have to recommend one...

the Pioneer DVDR-A04 is a pretty good DVD-RW drive
