Re: Anyone here into HTPC?
definitely build your own pc. If you can't put together a pc good luck setting up and running a HTPC. You're going to spend alot of time fighting with the pc to get it to output the format you want. Are you going to be running a High definition tv tuner in the pc? You'll need a huge over 200gig hard drive to be worth anything if you're recording high def. video. I have tons of appz and tons of info for htpc's but unless you read about it all you won't be able to run it all anyways. Go to http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/
and click on home theater pc section. This web site by far has the most info, every thing you'll need from projectors, audio equipmnet, screens, htpc's, anything and everything. Just start reading.
You've got a lot to read and learn but it's real fun if you're into that stuff. Good luck and have fun!!
