I have Time Warner Cable in Staten Island NY......

I would be quite happy with SD but perhaps I should leave my options 
open for HD in the future.

One additional question.... If I simply connect my Coax cable into a 
tuner card will I automatically get all channels that I am permited to 
have?  My gut says no... that the cable box has a code in it.

As for my budget..... I can afford a new computer if I had to but I may 
have access to a used 2ghz HP desktop.
