What are your current system specs? This could help us look for new parts for your existing system.

pcwizard is in my sig, what do you mean by streaming media machine, do you mean putting media and streaming it online if thats what you want to do your internet connection is more important than your PC.

Or do you want a media center cause thats easier all you need is a tv card and some software.

Seems reasonable and easy, you might want to look into the PVR software you need to do it ive always liked the looks of http://www.mythtv.org/index.php ill probably try it myself once i get my TV card hooked up to the big ariel.

If you want to dispose of your stereo you might want to get a sound card and obviously some good speakers, digi box to get rid of that your gonna need a digital TV card, ive got a cheap one cause it does the job but if its for a main system that your gonna watch all the time invest in a good TV card.
