As an ongoing project, our PC Spec drawup of Feb 2009 we've come up with this affordable Quad Core solution. We threw in a TV Tuner card to take advantage of Vista Home Premium's capability with them (also there is decent Linux support for it as well).

This system has higher specs than my current one which was purchased in December 08 which flies. The total on this should run approximately $1,065.85 plus s&h.
