[Phil Carr] "Is there any way i can stop the troubles you spoke about?"

The only way to properly address them is to get a Mac Pro or a Macbook Pro. However, a fix for the system you are looking at is to partition the internal hard drive into two separate drives. Using one partition as a system drive and the other as a capture scratch drive. You can then use the firewire to digitize to the capture scratch and use then connect an external HDD for backup via USB (Never work with video from a USB drive!). It would work.

[Phil Carr] "Is it hard to out-put a video from Final cut studio, or will i run into trouble because of my systems Specs?"

Exporting for youtube and web video is simple via FCP. Your system will not have a problem with the export. Use the Export>Use Quicktime Conversion.
