An HTPC is great for a lot of things. It is actually the best music player and streamer. It is the most flexible video and picture player when properly equipped. The only thing that it cannot do as of today is play dolby vision metadata media, but that should change in weeks. It can also play every physical disk format except for SACD.
I built my current one in 2017 and the only thing it lacks is HDMI 2.1. When video cards come out that support HDMI 2.1, I can just upgrade
