Do NOT capture your video! Learn how to rip.

You say that you have spare RAM already. Do you know what kind it is?

When it comes to power supply, cost is not what you want to look at. Brand is what matters. Sometimes crap companies sell crap power supplies with big watt numbers, and charge high prices for them. You won't need many watts if you're running an energy-efficient CPU in a micro-ATX motherboard. Companies like Rosewill, Antec, Corsair, and Thermaltake are good.

Any game from about 2005 or earlier will be single-threaded, so a cheap single-core CPU should be fine, though I'd upgrade to an Athlon LE-1660. A Radeon HD 4350 should also be sufficient for your graphics needs, and is about as cheap as graphics cards get. Get a nice ASrock motherboard with an AMD chipset (like this) to go with it.

Most importantly, you'll DEFINITELY want a huge hard drive if you're planning on doing video editing. Do not settle for anything less than 320 GB.

It doesn't matter what you're making. Never capture unless the footage that you want simply doesn't exist on DVD.

only if you're running out of memory (ie, you begin to use virtual memory)

A defrag might help you though, give jkdefrag a shot

The cpu speed isn't everything. The celeron you have is from the core2 era, and the core2 architecture is better than the netburst architecture (which is what the P4 is)

If the architecture alone makes up for the speed difference, I don't know...but based on this I can pretty safely say you would be dissapointed with that P4 (your current computer has a celeron 920)

either one should tide you over. You're getting more for your money if you go with the AMD parts you listed from newegg imo

should be able to, my old Athlon64 X2 3800 (among the first commercially available dual core cpus, socket 939) could handle 720p without breaking a sweat so I'd say the parts you have in that list should do fine (never got any 1080p stuff before I upgraded).
