The thing is that my content (hd vids, music, .avi videos etc) is currently on my pc, and I want to watch it in my tv in my bedroom, with a little HTIB that I got recently. The thing is that I only need this, I dont want to record tv, get TV menus, or anything else. The only thing that I want to do is watch the videos from my pc in my TV in HD, and possibly get 5.1 sound since some videos have it. Do I need an expensive HTPC with expensive video cards, tv tuners and such? Which way is the cheapest to get this? Remember that Im a broke student... Thanks

Xbox 360 or better yet a PS3 can do the things you want. If you don't want a gaming console you can get a SageTV media extender or something of the like. Before I built my HTPC I was using my 360 for the things it sounds like you want to do.
