    Hi

    I am new to HTPC's, I would like to build my first one, however I am not familiar the specification I need. Please can you help.

    the Requirements that I have are as follows:-
    Mainly sued to stream HD 1080p content from NAS
    Possible 3D content
    It will be hard wired to the network - so no need for WIFI
    Play DVD's
    Does not need to play Blu-Ray, to start with but would like the option to future upgrade.
    HDMI with Audio into TV

    You will need to add Windows (if you dont have it already) on top of the price listed.
