To be honest, unless you plan on ripping your Blu-ray discs, I'd just go standalone. I find commercial BD playback software to be somewhat clunky (TMT to be specific, haven't tried others). I rip a...

Connection speeds with greater than 4Mbps upload do exist. Heck, I've occasionally gotten 25Mbps over Verizon and AT&T LTE (although actually using that for streaming will be pricey).

Any space/case constraints? Is microATX okay or do you need to have Mini-ITX? microATX Kabini is likely your cheapest route. Newegg might even have some combo deals.

Now these actually make the unlocked Pentium worth getting. :D Just didn't make sense to pair a $150+ MB with a $70 CPU. :rolleyes:

You don't really see individual sales on these items but Newegg often has blanket 10-20% off coupon codes for the entire category. I remember getting some 3.5" Orico docks for $20-25 and 2.5"...

Isn't the answer to this usually MicroCenter? Well, i3 is only minimum if you're going Intel. Plenty of AMD options capable of 3D below $100.

Agreed. I wouldn't exactly go for the RPi, though. I'd opt for Kabini or Celeron 1037u or similar.
