Gahh, too bad you didn't include a TV tuner or a harddrive. Otherwise I would have pointed him towards www.mythtv.org

If you have 900 bucks to spend, get 2 7900GT's and a new mobo/cpu.

Ehhh the 6600 isn't that good of a card. I had one and Doom 3 on it is really pushing it. If you don't want to upgrade your mobo/cpu, you could always get the 7800GS. Besides all that stuff only adds up to like 150 bucks, don't you have 400? And 500 on the way?
