Ok cool, thanks. I have a powerful i7 PC with a 780ti that I messed around with madVR on , but I found that in practice I am unwilling to move that PC, even though its a SFF build, into the theater. So I am looking for a NUC sized unit that can just stay connected. Since this PC will also be a music server, I dont really want something with a top notch card and CPU that will be a power hog when being used for mundane tasks like music. Not to mention the expense of putting together another relatively high powered PC. Before buying though I will check your buying guide to see what it would cost me these days for a GPU that is up to the task.
I am kind of an all or nothing type of person though. I either want the simplest, highest value solution that will get the job done, or the absolute best that allows me to turn on every madVR feature.
