I am looking to build at the lowest price possible a cheep PC that I will use to stream HD shows from Hulu for example to my 40" 1080p HDTV. I was wondering if you guys knew a decent processor and video card requirements to do that. I wound't be running games or normal computer apps on it all I would be doing is streaming movies from online and from my computers in my network. So I guess price is really important to me I want to know the barebones processor and graphics cards then maybe take it a step up from there.
Thanks in advance.

And just a note...I have not gone with AM3 socket because it would require DDR3 RAM and would slightly increase the cost of the overall PC though it is the way to go if you are considering a better upgrade path...But you wont notice any performance increase though...
Thanks a lot guys I really appreciate it. Disk space isn't really important because I will be streaming from other computers in my network with bigger HDs. I am kind of new to this and looking to get better. Do the motherboards come with video cards or do I have to buy a separate one. I am assuming they don't come so which one would you recommend?
