Default Another barebone box thread

Ok, well first of all let me introduce my self. My name is Chris and i live in california. Enough said. I am looking to build my own computer, i am looking in the ways of barebone boxes for obvious reasons.

Questions: What kind of processer to get? (thinking pent4)
OS (thinking xp pro or 2k)
mother board?
graphics cards?
HDD?
and all that other little stuff.

I am looking for internet access, media, gaming, and the whole tv thing.

Thanks, Chris
