My proposal, any advice, thoughts, comments, questions would be appreciated.

WinTV-PVR-150MCE newegg.com $70.00
WinTV-PVR-350 ajump.com $174.00
ASUS V9520-X/TD/128 Geforce FX5200 128MB DDR newegg.com $44.50
ASUS A7V600-X Socket A (Socket 462) VIA KT600 newegg.com $59.50
AMD Athlon XP 2800+ Barton 333MHz FSB newegg.com $103.00
WINTEC 512MB DDR SDRAM (PC 3200) Unbuffered newegg.com $37.82
WD Caviar SE WD2500JD 250GB 7200 RPM SATA150 newegg.com $124.00

$612.82 total.
