advice on security cameras for home

I am looking to set up a couple of security cameras at home, can anyone advise what is the best way to do this and where to go for good cheap deals?

I would like to get 2 cameras up, front and back, with reasonable clarity and preferably a way to just record movement, and to get it saved for playback on computer.

you can get PCI dvr cards from ebay which allow you to connect the cameras into, then set a sensitivity zone so if the image changes they will record for a preset time.

If you do get a DVR card make sure you have a reasonable high frame rate - i bought one and whilst it does the job its a bit blurry.. but then i bought it from a HK seller for around 8 quid,,

Wireless ones are useful but a pain, as the DVR card will (depending uppon how cheap it is) cause inteference and after a few hours/days the image may go dark for no reason and require the cameras to be turned off/on.. (When i used th cameras with RCA leads direct into a TV they were fine so im guessing it was the DVR card or PC)

The file format is recorded as .AVI and on a 120gb HD you can store a month/two months worth of video (obv depending upon how sensitive you got it set and how much it records!)
