Just got one from my local staples - decent deal? 


What do I need to add to make this a dope HTPC? I will put Windows 7 on it for WMC - then what TV tuner card do I want?

If you have a spare sata port in there I'd install Win7 onto a solid state drive and use the 1TB for DVR storage. This will speed the media library up a lot.

I'd want a bluray drive but if that doesnt appeal to you then no need for one.

Who is your tv provider and how much tv do you watch? That will determine what tuner(s) you want.
