Hi all. I've just moved into a new place, and lost my study, so I've got a big desktop machine, that is currently sat in the living room, and is going to be my HTPC. It's in a monolithic Coolermaster Stacker case, with 7 HDDs and isn't exactly quiet. It's been built up over a while, has about 1tb of data storage. It's running Vista Ultimate with a Hauppage Nova-T USB external freeview tuner for MCE and all works swimmingly at the moment. Now I want to upgrade it, to make up proper HTPC of it, rather than a massive desktop that happens to play some TV. Current spec : Fairly new Core 2 Duo chip (don't know speed off top of my head). 1gb RAM, Radeon 9800XT graphics, 37gb WD Raptor SATA system drive. I want : A smaller case. Future-proofed BluRay support. A single interface that can be operated from my hauppage remote as now. Ability to play a range of SD and HD downloaded content. Ability to run via HDMI with all the annoying HDCP compliant rubbish into a new TV when I upgrade. My PC is currently connected to my aging Sharp LC30HV4E 30" LCD tv via D-SUB running native res of 1280x768(ish). I am planning on upgrading to a 50-60" 1080p plasma later this year when prices are sensible. Sorry this is a bit of a rambling post, I used to be really keen and into my PC hardware but I've pretty much totally lost track. I was considering getting a Shuttle barebones system and sticking a single 1tb SATA drive in as the first 'step' of an upgrade, but would like to hear some opinions! Cheers.
