I know you guys probably get this question all the time but I'm in kind of a hurry. I have retired my old PC to backup status and I'm thinking of trying to turn it into a HTPC of some kind if it's not too expensive. It's about 5 years old. A Micron PC / AMD Athlon 800mhz I think. It has about a gig of ram and two DVD drives, a 40 GB hard drive and a crappy video card that is dieing anyway. So, what do I need to get to make this thing useable or is it really worth it? It will be feeding a DLP projector with available VGA in and S-video in. I also have component to VGA and component to s-video adapters. I will need some kind of software to act as a front end for the system. Oh yeah, the OS is Win.XP if that matters. So, some of you guys that have done this before please give me some video/sound card recommendations. I need a way to get digital audio to my receiver also. It can be optical or coax, either one. If I can spend $300 or less that would be great but I don't expect any miracles there either. This will be my first experience with HTPC so I want to keep it simple, no fooling around with custom resolutions and timings and all that. I'm somewhat computer savy but maybe not enough. Thanks guys.
