I second the Hauppage card + ATI combo that is a SWEET combo.

Instead of the Vista/media center options you may want to look into Linux's "MythTV". Heck their is even a Linux distro with MythTv all setup and ready to go for the beginner (KnoppMyth).

Here is some URLS if you are interested:

A Beginning Look At MythTV

Good luck!
