How to sync video with audio

I?m trying to make some short music videos in real time (?live?) using a sony dvr-trv120. I?m plugging directly into a gateway M350 laptop.

Using a mike picks up too much ambient noise and the mike input gain level/limiter on the dvr-trv120 is apparently fixed. It?s too hot and cannot be attenuated. So,??????.I have a couple of different audio editing programs: Sony Sound Forge 7 and Cakewalk 6 LE. The only video program I have is Windows Movie Maker. I also have a roland UA-25 EX ext. sound card I can use instead of the sigmatel crd that came stock.

I want to shoot the video, recording the audio portion separately but, in sync.
Can this be done with hardware/software described above?

Thank you for any advice.
