Your not gonna be bothered about a noisy HTPC then??
Not familair with the details on your hardware but make sure you take into acount how your gonna transmit video and audio to the display.
Obviously HDMI would take advantage of the Bluray High definition audio if you have a capable AVR to run it by before the dispaly device (and the video card supports the HD formats).
Otherwise its DVI + S/PDIF.
Think about how you might incorporate a remote control too.
I must admit, its difficult, (make that impossible) for a HTPC to be as user friendly as a piece of CE hardware like a dvd / Bluray player in my experiance.
My phone often goes off when the wife picks up the remote to play something for the kids but that's not just the HTPC.
She also gets confused turning over the inputs on the AVR and the TV.
One time, the granparents were baby sitting and ended up watching a whole movie in silence. I knew I should have just left out the TV remote and nothing else.
