Advice ?: HT AV Receiver with PC Networking!



I'm putting together a HT system for the first time. I need some pointers on my choices below(mainly receiver and speakers). I'm being a bit ambituous and am willing to go in for a mid-range system($1000 budget including speakers) I'm thinking 60% music, 40% Movies.
The geek in me flips over the idea of being able to hook up my HT system(tobe) with my PC/laptop etc.
I'm contemplating the
JVC RX-8020V 5.1 Channel Home Audio Receiver(USB connectivity did me in). The 0.8% THD rating seems to be a bit scary ? Too few reviews on the internet

Opinions?Comments?Suggestions? (followup/similar products) are solicited and welcome.

I've not decided on the speakers yet. (Help!)

As a sidenote I plan to start off this ensemble with a hauppage digital media receiver to be able to stream music and use the USB connectivity once in a while "to look cool"! (i'd do it all the time if I had a 12'' ibook!)
