£500 will get you a reasonable 80cm motorised system and maybe a card, but you would have to fit it yourself for that price.

How clueless are you really ?

Sounds reasonable, would personally go for a matrix reloaded instead of the Magic Module, but that is personal choice. You will also need to consider a Programmer, Infinity Poenix USB or similar and perhaps a couple of fun 6 cards and a Titanium.

Elvis will be fine you just need the latest version of TJ's MultiProg, the Titanium is the latest and probably one of the most powerful cards available at the moment.

The Matrix Reloaded is more flexible than the Magic (many have converted their magic to MR), The Magic does have one advantage, in that it can emulate Conax, but you need a card for everything else, whereas the Matrix appears to be able to emulate near everything else and only requires a card for Conax. :)

Nothing at the moment, it all went pear shaped on the 28th.
