I'm new to this site, i came here to learn to build a pc, i have no experience at in doing this but i'm ready to learn.
I want to build a computer for watching television shows online, for instance from fancast and hulu, also i would like to record some shows from cable tv, and do a little bit of gaming.
I was going to use my tv for a monitor, as i have already had my notebook hooked up to it, my budget is 500-900$. any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit OEM is about $100 and a keyboard/mouse combo is about $50. A good TV tuner card should still keep you under $900.
