Lots of music, movies and TV recording, a bit of gaming also need a bit of firepower for office work. dont have the expertise to build one myself and need this speced out fast.

Monitor: Does not have to be big, but has to be the best. From various postings, it does look like a 19" widescreen is best for movies etc, so willing to spend that extra buck over
this. Acer AL1916W 19" Widescreen LCD Monitor - Black/Silver MO-012-AC) £182 seems the safe choice?

Anyone has stong opinions on what’s the best
in this price range?

- Retail (SP-021-LG) £200

TV tuner: again looking for the best here.
Hauppauge WinTV HVR-1300 Media Centre Edition Freeview TV Tuner (GX-026-HA)

CPU/mobo: looking for an AMD dual core, whats the best given the remaining budget?

puts it just a bit over your top limit, but you would have a very nice machine. You would need to add OS though.
