Well, if I had been reading this earlier, I would have picked up the LG model, but I just ordered an ASUS BW-06D2X-U/BLK/G/AS BDXL writer to replace a dead BD reader. I guess we will have a chance...

Yes, but if it is working, I would wait for the next generation AMD cards. Based on preview information, we are looking at 1/2 of the power use of the current high-end cards.

Google Machete Order for Star Wars Movies.

That said, I have not shown my son Episode III yet. His reaction to Episode II was too much kissy.

How about a Harmon Kardon 3770, it is 2-channel with a sub-out and a lot of the digital capabilities of an AVR. May be no better option than an AVR for stereo, however.

I don't agree with this statement. I do agree that there is no difference between CD and FLAC, which is why my 1,000+ CDs reside on a NAS.

Personally, I would keep 2011 because it works until it comes close to the end of extended support or until you need something missing from that option that is provided by a newer option.

If you have a composite video cable (yellow to yellow) it will be shielded RCA and work as well as a dedicated sub cable. Mine was free that way, as I had extras in a box.

My understanding is if you update the license you do not have roll-back license like in the days of Vista to 95 or Win 8 to Win 7. If you want to keep the machine on 8, I would not upgrade it.
