I want to get a custom built desktop style (not tower) computer to put in
my TV Stand so I can watch TV on my computer monitor and use the same
monitor to do computer work including PVR and basic video editing. I will
NOT be using it for games. I know the smaller form factor means I have to
be concerned with heat and power usage, plus I'm expecting power costs to
skyrocket in the near future.

But I can't find how much power the processors and chip sets use. Would I
be better off with a P4 or an AMD XP processor? And which chip set to go
with it, preferably with an integrated graphics chip that would work for TV
viewing?

Thanks.

For long (like >30 min) TV shows you may find the small "TV" annoying.
