What is more important for hosting, having a great pc or having a great connection ?

Do you need to be on cable/adsl etc to fully appreciate the game like you need on Unreal Tournament or will I be able to host efficiently on a 56k v.90 modem ?

Basically the latter, supported and enhanced by the first..

your connection is a direct influence on how fast data-packages get sent out. If you're the host, people depend on you for that.
I don't know GB's performance online yet, so better go with the safe side: cable...

I have hosted just fine on a 56k so far , but thats only four player and 50 units on a team. when full version comes out hosting will need to be done on dsl or cable
