Looking to build a pc, any advice would be welcome. I would like the system to play and record digital TV, download and play films down load and play music if possible to send music to different rooms / areas around the house. This may sound very basic to most of you out there but I am a novice.
Cheers

Far cheaper to buy a system than build your own nowadays.

There are several threads already running at the moment regarding building your own system, just do a forum search.

for what you want a very cheap system with TV card and audio streamer will do the job.
