I have a
Processor 2.2 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
Memory 4 GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM
Graphics NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT 128 MB

I have read that I can upgrade it to a higher 6gb of ram but will that matter? Thanks in advance

Well check out www.crucial.com and use the system scanner. That should tell you what the MAX RAM is and what you have currently.

As for gopro what are the recommended specs? It should be on the site or box.

you don't need to use mpeg stream clip, final cut x will convert the files for you.
