Suggestions on Software/Hardware for beginning composer

Hey all, I was wondering if anyone could help me by telling me what kind of stuff I need to record my songs on my computer. All I have currently is a keyboard with MIDI output and an 8-track digital recorder (which I don't want to have to use anymore, due to quality and limitations). I compose video game music, so I'm interested in orchestra sounds, rather than, say, techno or hip-hop sounds or whatever. I've done some research on software, but I still don't know what all I need to get started. Like, if I bought Tascam's Gigastudio 3.0 Orchestra, would I be able to record songs with it, using my keyboard's MIDI output to access the sounds libraries, and not needing any other software? See, I just don't know if that's all I need to buy or if I need more programs or what. So if anyone can give me some suggestions, that would be great.

I'm gonna try to attach a file of one of my songs, just to give an example of what I try to do. Sorry about the low volume.

Also, has anyone heard of Advanced Orchestra Set GIGA as a sound library? Can anyone give me some info on that in comparison to the other products we've discussed?
Chris, that flow-chart is scary lookin. !
I would recommend you to try with Myriad Harmony Assistant and its Virtual Singer. Free trial.
