    Any PC with Quadcore + and 8-12 GB of RAM and a 1.5-2GB GFX card should do the trick.
    As long as you don't go below those specs then you'll be fine.

    I can record gameplay from me 360 on my 5 year old laptop without major problems ;p

    Being able to record is easy. Any computer in the last 6 or so years won't have a problem with it. Being able to render fast, that's a whole different story. The stronger the CPU and GPU (depending on the program you're using) you get, the faster the rendering will be.

    Also, don't use the vRAM of the graphics card as a measure of strength. The 2GB GTX 560 Ti is actually slower than the 1GB version.
