    Where is a good place to buy a HTPC for my lounge. I would like to be able to customise it as much as possible and have found one site (vadim.co.uk) but is there any others or is it easier to build one. I have quite a bit of experience replacing and ram, hard drives, peripherals, graphic cards , etc. Also would it be cheaper to build one? i like the look of the silverstone cases as i would like it to match my existing setup as much as possible. any advice would be appreciated.

    I usually buy my desktops machines from which ever online store does the system I want for the moeny (aren't system configurators a great thing)!!

    but, and it's a BIG BUTT, when lokoing at my HTPC I just couldn't get a good deal. I reckon you'll save a hell of a lot of money, as well as getting a FAR asuperior machine by building yourself.

    Look in the PC hardware forums to find some specs.
