So, Just What Is a Multimedia Desktop?

I am going to purchase a new desktop with a dual or quad core processor and 4GB of memory so that I can edit HD videos from a Sony HD Handycam using Pinnacle editing software for the Sony AVC HD format. I would also like to put my music and photos on the computer.
I plan to add an eSATA port to rapidly access video stored externally, a hot graphics card, and a remote control.
Do I need a game quality graphics card, like the XFX GeForce 8800 gt optimized for DX10, or is that a waste of money (I don't game)?
Whay is the purpose of a TV tuner?
Should I get the Windows Media operating system?
Will I be able to hook this up to my large screen HD LCD?
What else might I add to the computer?
