    Windows Media Center is just what it says, a media center. It play music and movies and such. Nothing to do with games.
    Biggest thing is the graphics card (no onborad graphics which usually suck) and the RAM which you should go for 1GB at least
    and of corse a good processor, core2duo if you can afford it.

    try cyberpowerpc.com

    http://www.cyberpowerpc.com/r05/ri05.asp

    you can customize your pc specs to what you need and want.

    Also, what you want is not what your gonna get for a grand. You might aswell look on ebay.
