2. Windows Vista Ultimate is all Windows in 1(Pro, Home, Media etc)
3. Intel... or a AMD, but your gonna have to pay alot

Windows MCE is just windows xp pro, with an extra multimedia aplication. But if u can, wait and get a vista PC. Vista Ultimate is nice but will be expencive.
I like Intel over AMD. This is because my old PC has an AMD and i never liked it. The intel pentium D is a real nice proccesor but remeber: Dual core means a lot of heat. The boxed cooler make's a lot of noice. So if u want it to be a media center u can think of buying a Zalman aircooler or mayde even watercooling. Water-cooling is not that expencive anymore but if u move your pc a lot (to LAN-party's) dont' take a cheap one!!!! they can leak! I have a cheap one, but never move my pc. Than its great and no noice at all. good luck.
