I currently am running a SD HTPC. Windows media center. It is old tech, which forces me to upgrade. I have seen lots of suggestion on building a HD HTPC but my equipment (TV is not there yet, my TV is square). So I am wanting to build a SD HTPC with the capability to expand to HD+blu-ray in the near future. This is not going to be used for gaming. I use it for music, SD DVD's and DVR functionality.

Things I can reuse:

Hauppage 150 MCE

2 X 1.5 TB sata drives.


What I want:

typical SD HTPC and later on buy a blu-ray drive, and a HD pvr. I would love both Hdmi and composite/svideo on board.


My op system

Vista ultimate (I already own it).


I know people ask these type of questions all the time but most talk about strictly an HD/gaming setup. I need a SD output until I upgrade my TV.

I have everything picked out except video card, mobo, cpu and ram (because mobo's seem to be so picky about ram). I have to have a microatx because I picked out the Sugo case.


Thanks
