I mean no offence, but if you haven't build a robot before, starting with 'legs' would be much to complicated.  Start with building a wheeled robot before making anything that walks.

Chances are you would have more trouble controlling your robot directly from your pc.  Try building The $50 Robot, then go from there.  Plus, using a micro controller (a robots "brain") will allow your robot to function independently from your computer.

A rather fast and fairly heavy robot with quite large wheels needs what? A lot of power?
