How would this be as a starting point for a computer? I'm looking to stream video and eventually use as a DVR. I have to do it all inexpensively and I can add components in time. My budget is $400-500 total.

I think you would be better off choosing each individual part, it will save you money and allow you to get what you really need. Under $500 should not be to hard is four needs are just HTPC related. Take a look at assassins sticky there is lots of great info there.

Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes.That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.
