Anyone recommend the best pre-built HTPC available on the market today (or coming soon)? It would be used as a replacement for my crappy Comcast HD-DVR. I'm looking to add a cablecard tuner to it - so probably end up getting either the HDHomerun prime or the Centon InfiniTV 4.

So besides watching & recording HDTV, I'll also use it for streaming from netflix, hulu, etc. Blu-ray support would be a bonus.

Can't really go wrong with one of assassins htpcs but if your feeling ambitious (it's truly very easy) you could build it yourself. There's some great stickies here that have complete instructions for what parts. Also some paid guides with build instructions and how to set it up. I would look into that if I were you and see what you think. If you don't want to do that then there is always assassins htpc store :-).

Here is the parts guide if your interested:

+1 to Assassin, I researched computers and I will put the link at the bottom, but for the same price as a pre-built, build your own and you get better quality, speed, and HD space than anything else. Oh, and pride!
