Go on [H]ardForum and ask around, they're more than glad to help you out and point you in the right direction. It's not nearly as expensive as you'd think. Most of the basic systems from TigerDirect will work, just add TV card and Remote ($50 and $20 respectivly) to a $300 system.
Another place to look for hardware that's good is NEwegg. Also for a remote, since it's cheep, I'd suggest Ebay, my Firefly I use is like $20. Some of hte stuff you can pick up at geeks for cheep too.
