Here's what I've got, but maybe there are some components which I can upgrade/downgrade to improve the whole HTPC.
I mean I'd rather enjoy to cut costs. But still want to keep the beast without upgrading at least for 2 years (reinstalling OS doesn't count )

Purpose of this HTPC:
1. Enjoy 67" samsung to its maximum!
2. BD & DVD's
3. Downloaded HD content (720p & 1080p) + SD content (like soaps)
4. Gaming - NFS, flight games, fifa 09 and just general multi-player games (and sims 2 for my wife)
5. Home Server

1080p is a must, i also want 7.1 sound to go through HDMI (it IS possible, isn't it?)

ASUS P5N7A-VM NVIDIA GeForce 9300/nForce 730i HDMI
Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 2.4GHz
OCZ Fatal1ty Edition 4GB (2x2GB) DDR2 800
Seagate Barracuda 7200 1.5TB
LG Black Blu-ray/HD DVD-ROM & 16X DVD±R DVD Burner
Logitech diNovo Mini Keyboard

and a case for it (CASE Link)

Later on I would add joystics and gamepads for gaming as well as a dedicated gCard, but not just yet

Thanks a lot for your help
Andrew
