i also recommend getting a nice media GPU like a 8400GS or 2400 pro

unless your currently using bluray or hddvd, i dont reccomend starting at the moment. neither format has 'won' yet as the standard, and current movies are barely better. I have a 42inch 720p hd tv and my regular dvd's look great. Im using a dvd player that has hd cables though.

You can get an hdd for something like 200 bucks as a set top box.

Blu-ray is still expensive and the cheapest way to buy into it is with a ps3.

IMHO its all just a waste.
