Media Server Computer

This is related to my other thread about a media center computer.

This is about the hardware and money.

If you know or not, I am building a media/server to host all my files and share them with my TV and other computers. This is my first real project that I want to do, so should be good.

I want to get at least 1TB or 2TB of drive space.

Now that is the only thing I know.

Besides the HDTV Tuner card (which should be helped with in other thread) what else would I need for the system. I do not have a large budget for this project just to let you know.

Do I need a high end computer, a powerful videocard? What would be the best and cheapest setup for this media/server computer? I am assuming I will need a fast Ethernet card? or does that not matter.... Please tell me your ideas and opinions on this. I need all the help I can get.

Thanks in advance. (and if both my threads should only be one, I'm sorry and please combine them)

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
