my 1st computer

Discussion in 'Computer Information' started by The Great One, Oct 26, 2004.

  1. I am trying to build a computer that is not only great for games and videos,
    but will also be my switchboard from my entertainment center. I want to be
    able to hook my cable up to it and watch tv with it or switch to the net and
    use my TV as the monitor (S-video or better). I want to be able to hook my
    receiver up to it and get surround sound. I want it to be *double click* i
    wanna watch a dvd, *double click* i wanna watch HBO, *double click* i wanna
    watch this avi movie, *double click* i wanna play Doom 3. i need ideas on
    EVERYTHING i will need and good places online to get them from. I have no
    idea what im doing so all help will be GREAT. I also want this to be built
    for under $1,000 if possible.

    Resolution on most TVs is so poor that they don't make decent monitors; best
    bet is to use a good monitor as a TV display using a TV tuner card and good
    stereo speakers for sound.

    Soundmax digital audio is built into new boards and sound cards.
