Australian home theater/ gaming rig

i dont really have a budget but whatever would be best is what i need

i want to be able to get rid of foxtel digital and use a computer for my tv needs. i have a plasma tv, a 23inch and a 17inch moniter. i want to watch tv and movies and play games on the tv but use the 23 inch and the 17 for everything else. plus i have a wireless mouse and keyboard. plus i want to record some of the videos

Main uses: Home theater, gaming, regular use video editing

parts not required : tv or moniters, keyboard and mouse

overclocking: probably not

xfire or sli : probably not

Preferred sites: i live in sydney so www.msy.com.au or www.itestate.com.au

brands: amd and ati more than likely


i was thinking

AMD Phenom II x6 1055T
xfx 5770
Coolermaster storm scout
coolermaster 550w gx psu
4 or 8 gigs of ram
WD 1.5 TB 7200rpm
Samgsung Bluray reader and dvdrw

  1. I would go for a Phenom II X4 955 (it will outperform the 1055T in gaming and is cheaper), a 5770 or better yet a 5850, 4GB of 1333/1600MHz CL7 RAM, a 1TB Samsung Spinpoint F3/Barracuda 7200.12 HDD, and a 550W Antec, Corsair, or Seasonic PSU.
