Best possible Youtube Video

I want to make the best possible youtube video for promoting my songs, and I wonder where I should invest my money. Its vocals and acoustic guitar. I have a 4 year old decent PC, allen heath mixer, sm58/57, Audix OM6, Old echo mia card. Im also buying a HD camera. Should I just shoot for the Neumann U87 or what?

Shoot it with a good camera and good source. Use an editing program that allows separation of audio from video (NOT movie maker) and make the best damn vidyas you can!

With a good source? Are you talking about microphones?
What would be a great recording signal chain for vocals? SM58 - A&H mikser - echo soundcard acceptable?

That signal chain should work great given the right room setup.

will a good mixer like the A&H be a substitute for a decent soundcard?

Using the sound card built into your computer is far from a good idea, really. Only do that if you absolutely need to. If you purchased something like a Tascam USB audio device you'd be better off as it will high a higher frequency spectrum and will be much more acceptable sound quality wise.

If you're doing to use a nice audio console, limiting yourself with a junk input to your recording computer will render the nice console almost useless unfortunately.

OK, so my expensive A&H mixer is useless in this situation?

What easy editing program do you recommend ? Sony Vegas?
I have Cakewalk Sonar 8. It might seperate the audio or I could mute it.
