Default Highly recommend this setup, if you have the money

1 computer case with at least 3 drive slots and a mid-to high range power supply
2 500GB SATA hard drives
1 DVD drive
1 motherboard (doesn't need to be top of the line, but definitely higher-end; make sure it has one of the following: an HDMI output, a component output, or an S-video output that corresponds to your tv; buy a cable for your connection of choice)
1 processor (at least 2 GHz)
1 mid to high-end graphics card (at least 1 GB of dedicated RAM)
1 computer surround sound system (optional)
Windows XP or Vista (if you know Linux well enough and want to save yourself a hundred bucks, definitely do that)Get a decent computer for a decent price and use it for fun things

A very informative OP.

Also note there are only 2 cards currently out that have 1GB of memory, and according to Heyyou, they're slower compared to the 768MB videocards.

please, for the love of god, STFU.
