I am new to this world so I am wondering what I need to convert my current PC into this type of device. More specifically, what connections will I need to make between the PC and A/V Receiver? Do I need a video card that has HDMI out? Or, since I am looking to get a new motherboard and RAM anyways to fix the problems my PC is having, look for a motherboard specifically with onboard HDMI built in and will that take care of everything I need? Can it really be that simple?
Obviously I will need some decent storage for my music, movies, and games but other than this are there any other requirement you experts might know that I need that I may not?
Thank you for your help in advance!
Here's my setup at the moment:
BenQ w1070 DLP projector
Yamaha RX-V473 A/V Receiver (4 HDMI inputs)
AMD Phenom II x4 945 (3.0 Ghz)
Geforce 8800GTS 640Mb
Getting a new motherboard
And getting new RAM
