RAM is DDR3 or DDR2?

Anycase you can keep your case, psu, hard drive and your RAM if DDR3 is in question.
Everything other is too weak/old.

Go for a configuration like this:
- Intel Core i5 2500k
- 8 GB ddr3 1333 or 1600 MHz
- AsRock P67 Pro3 or Z68
- Radeon HD 6950, 7850, 7870 or a GeForce GTX 570, 580.
- 90-120GB SSD (OCZ Agility, Corsair, Intel, Samsung)
- Windows 7 Home Premium x64 64-bit retail with SP1
That would do the trick.

Perfect if you can afford.

That last item is not a hard drive, it is an Solid State Drive.
Your average HDD has a read speed of 100-120 MB/s, a write speed od 70-90 MB/s and an acces (seek) time of 16 miliseconds. That SSD drive has read 500-525 MB/s, Write speed of 500 MB/s and an access time of 1 ms or even less.
Imagine booting into Windows in a matter of seconds, starting programs in an instant, no more waiting/loading times...
Simply use your old HDD as a storage device. Use an SSD for Windows, programs & games.

In the case of a video production machine, the SSD's real benefit will be to move system tasks into nothingness, e.g. memory swaps, driver loads, etc., running so fast that the editing software doesn't see the pause when Windows puts a hold on things to do its business because the process is infinitesimally short. An SSD can add an edge to production equipment.

However, I DO NOT RECOMMEND that the SSD is used for video production storage or rendering. They don't last as long as HDD and this process could be a quick end for one!

When people say stuff like this, it just scares me into not wanting to get an SSD lol. I'd just always be worried that I'm using it too much and that its going to burn out or something >.<

Modern SSD drives come with a warranty of 3 to 5 years (depending on the production company and the drive model).
Intel & Samsung have the smallest SSD RMA rate.
