    As GregHook as stated doesnt need to be a top of the range PC if it is for HCPC use only, you mainly need a top pc for gaming etc.

    I just made my first HCPC this weekend which is of reasonable spec and it cost £375 which is far less than the dvd player that i was thinking of buying, and i now have plenty of upgrade potential i.e i can add additional hd space for use as a jukebox/moviebox and i can also add dvd burner if i want to back up my collection etc.

    The picture quality from a hcpc is really very excellent especially if you have a pj, plasma or lcd display.

    i took the plunge and would thoroughly recommend it.
    especially if you have a plasma or projector.
