I'm looking into the possability of putting a Home theatre PS in my soon to be completed theater room. I did a little searching but couldnt find much


Would anyone be so kind as to post a list or link to a list of things a person should buy for such a PC.



Recomenned processor, RAM, Sound Car, Video card, software, Etc


Thanks

What do you want to do with the HTPC? just DVD, HDTV, audio, games, etc.

This will determine what kind of HW/SW you will need.


Also check out those posts along the lines of "Please review my system configuration before I place the order". They show up every other day or so.


Also check out the FAQ at the top.


Hope this helps!

I would be using it for DVDs, gaming and normal PC use. I'd propably use an external HDTV cable box, unless there is a better reason to use th PC for it

Are you going to hook it up to a external receiver? Is dolby digital encoding necessary for you (currently requires nforce2 MB and AMD processor).


For the AMD route, I usually recommend Barton 2500+ and Abit or ASUS nforce2 MB.


For Intel route, I usually recommend P4 2.4C and Abit or ASUS 875/865 chipset.
