I paid about £800 for a very similar spec HTPC only 6 months ago, I feel sick :eek: Only difference is a Quad Core........Great for the price :smashin:

You might feel slightly better now... i'd forget that i updated the list with the the Dinovo Mini and Blu Ray drive, but not the price!

It has still only cost just over £600 mind....
