hi guys... new to this..but i have some major kit HT wise (Meridian digital theatre into Panny 42 ") i have a PC conected, and mainly use it for web access, but it is on its last legs and if i am going to buy a new PC i should look at the options !! couple of points: 1. I need it to be a proper PC too... i will be using Office etc to do some work.. 2. I need it to look good ! 3. I want the best possible kit, within reason ! I have some kit that may be superfluous after i get the HTPC, but need advice on this.... for example my Sky+ box outputs RGB into a Dr J Simm RGB to YUV convertor into a IScan Ultra box which feeds a VGA signal into the plasma....phew ! i also have a DVD-R which has become almost redundant since the birth of my Sky+ box and a motorised Sat system... cant all these units be rolled into one...a HTPC.... not only that, but will it take all my other kit... PS2, X Box, GameCube and output them Progressive doing away with my IScan Ultra...but also a shiny new PC that i can surf the web with !! less boxs...less connections etc.. Assuming the answer to the above is YES... what do i get.. i can drive a keyboard and do a bit of jiggery pokery but i'm no computer geek... whilst i probably could chuck together all the various elements into a suitable chasis i imagine that all the tweaking and latest drivering etc would drive me mental.. so i would prefer to go to a HT "boutique" and have them build it for me... the ones in this forum and therefore the ones i assume are the ones to have are the Uvem and LMP ... i like the look of the Uvem III...any thoughts ? On the PC side of things i would like it to be super fast...have Bluetooth... Massive HD, bags of RAM be everything and more i would get from buying a good Dell or whatever...am i asking too much ? BTW i know there is a thread for recomendations, but that seems to be the various elements... i want the whole shootin match delivered to me ready to go !
