    Assuming I have a half decent Intel based PC, what graphics, sound, OS and s/w components should I look at if my requirements are as follows:

    1. Not interested in Gaming or major video editing.

    2. Record and Playback normal TV programes back onto the TV at the highest quality possible (but not high def.)

    3. Playback DVD-Videos onto TV, using RGB if poss.

    4. Transfer & Store all my DVD-Video films onto the hard drive and playback from hard drive onto the TV at highest possible quality, i.e. in RGB if poss

    5. Record/Store or transfer programmes onto hard drive from my SKY box (in RGB if poss) or VHS player. Playback onto TV in RGB.

    Just need help deciding which combination of components and software? (Assume a modest budget)
