Default Media PC

I may be posting this in the wrong section....if so feel free to move it to where ever it belongs.

my wife wants to get rid of our stereo in the basement.....equalizer....receiver...turntable.... cd palyer....I said ok, if we replace it with a media pc....something capable of playing all of our music, but I need it to sound **** good....I also need it to be cheap

I can add on some stuff later......

I need the following
1. Mobo.....a nice brand that will sound sweet....any thing cheap stand out?
2. CPU
3. Ram
4. Power Supply......nice solid supply needed
5.Case.......the best cheap case available, will good cooling
6. A nice sound card for music, unless there is good onboard...then I can add later.
7. DVD drive

Any ideas and advice will be greatly appreciated....really looking for some cheap good sound
