First question - does the digital camera require a Firewire port (digital tapes)? If so that could be an issue if you don't have a capture program that came with the camcorder.
As for recommendations - You can always download the free Windows Movie Maker if you are looking for a basic but useful video editor. If you want more, Roxio Creator NXT 5 or NXT 5 Pro w2ill give you all you need - except if you want to do blu ray discs. You'll need to buy the plg in for that.
I hate to say this but you i5 @2.5 and 4 g RAM with only 250 G hard drive will struggle with all but pretty simple editing. You can always buy an external hard drive and external blu ray burner the hlp.
Roxio is owned by Corel but there is no free trial. . Corel@ has Video Studio free trail. They also own Pinnacle@ but I don't think there is a free trial. My suggestion is to look at other video editors and try a couple of them if they have free trials. Remember that the best software is the one that thinks like you do (intuitive for you).
