Thanks, that's pretty much what I wanted to here, so I will probably jump on it. As for the HD capture, isn't that what this does: http://www.digitalconnection.com/Pro...deo/mdp120.asp

Pricey, yes, but I'm sure costs will drop by the time I purchase a new FP that is capable of taking advantage of HD resolution anyway...

OK, I purchased the computer that was listed, so thanks for the advice everyone. I do have two final questions. If it doesn't have an OS, what will happen when I turn the computer on and will installing Windows be an easy task? My other question is, once I get Windows installed and attempt to install whatever video card I buy, will the stock card be a burden on the computer or will it be easily disabled?

Umm, I can say for sure that installing Windows should be easy
