PCVRS712 Sony computer 1199 what u think?

I had previous sony computer I liked it I know sony computer is expensive but is this a good deal?
Intel® Pentium® 4 Processor 3.0 GHz1 with Intel® Hyper-Threading Technology
1MB L2 Cache, 512 ddr ram, dvd rw cd rw,

Video & Graphics
NVIDIA® GeForce™ FX5200 128MB
TV-Out / VGA-Out / DVI-Out (DVI Output8Mx16x8pcs)

I was wondering about the graphics card will this allow my PC to become a PVR? it doesnt come with giga pocket but with the video card is this still possible? Whats the TV out for? thanks anyone else like this deal?

meh its a okay computer if you don't know much about computers, plus they have good technical support that you can call anytime of you have any computer problems at all.

Sony's are all good but keep in mind that if you ever need warranty service from sony, you would have to send it to their service centre MTC in whitby, and their support services suck (both MTC and Sony). My two cents. =)

Why don't you get one built, get a dual display card, some silent-type parts and you can still be in that range of cost. And then have a real htpc/pvr.

TV Out means it Outputs to a TV meaning instead of displaying on your monitor you can display on your TV or use both.
