Default new pc build

I would need every thing. I do have a keyboard. I would like to keep it under $1000. Also, I would like to be able to record from my tv to my computer and if I dl a video be able to watch it on my tv. The games I would play are spore, age of empires 3, and armed assault. I may play others.

Thanks.

^He would probably be better off with a e7200 or a q6600 because he still needs OS, monitor, TV tuner, mouse, and probably a bigger hard drive if he plans on recording videos.

Chickfilafan, does your TV have HDMI? The HD 4850 comes with a DVI to HDMI converter so you can use that to connect to your TV if it has an HDMI port.

As for recording things you will need a TV tuner, Hauppage make good TV tuners and they are not all that expensive.

If you are planning on regular not HD recording this card should be fine: Newegg.com - Hauppauge WinTV-PVR 150 MCE FM 1042 PCI Interface - TV Tuners & Video Devices

That ram has bad timings. These Patriot Vipers are better.

The 500gB hard drive should be good. My TV is not an HD . What OS does everyone recommend Vista or XP? Thanks for everyone's help!
