    Okay I have always built my own pcs using quality products that I know. Bt a lot has changed since my last buid (2 years and kids) So I think I want to use a Pc with media center. Looking to build Amd64 3200, with 1024 corsair ram, 300gb serial ATA, graphics/ tv card not sure which with 17@ monitor.
    Would also want to use pc through plasma as well. By the time I have all my parts for the pc I`m looking at 800 odd pounds. I then look in pc world and see a few that interest me like the HP1170, 1150 also the advent T9202. Am I as well buying one of these or building my own which may actually cost more by the time I add a license, 17 or 19 tft and a graphics card.

    Any suggestions?
