Default i need a new pc

hey every1, i'm new here and just wanted some feedback on what sort of desktop computer i should get for gaming mostly. also i want a video card that i can watch tv using my pc. i just bought a 19" lcd monitor (diamond digital 8ms) which i am happy with but i was looking at upgrading the rest of my computer. i am currently running a p4 2.4Ghz but was looking at perhaps getting a "Intel Pentium 4 '630' CPU - LGA775, 3.0GHz, 2Mb, 800MHz" or a "Intel Pentium D '920' CPU - LGA775, 2.8GHz, 2x2Mb, 800MHz". also what sort of motherboard can you sugguest and also if you can tell me the limits of this motherboard (ie whats the best processor it can run as i might upgrade that at a later date) and what other components can you sugguest for a gaming machine. also if anyone knows of some good websites to go to buy this please let me know. i am based at the gold coast (near brisbane) in australia.

If you're into gaming, you should get an AMD processor, they are better for gaming. Something like an AMD Athlon 64 3500+ or an AMD Athlon X2 3800+ (dual core). With a gig of ram and a pci express video card (you can add a tv tuner to watch tv, they are pretty inexpensive), and an SATA hard drive you should be just fine for playing games. Yes look on http://www.newegg.com , they have great deals there.

a mod should move this to the general section.
When all else fails...Ham Radio!

I still have the same old HP DV9700T laptop I've had for years...still kickin'
