Please help - tell me where could I get case, what software/hardware I should use, is there anything which outputs DTS/AC3 digital streams from PC.

Really you should look through the posts first, but some basics:


case, whatever looks good in your setup

video card, most agree that the Radeon and geforce2 lines offer the best picture

Soundcard. M-audio or soundblaster live/audigy are most used

If you are just looking for DVD playback, a DVD- drive is necessary, HDTV reception requires an additional card (like accessDV or Hipix).

Many people have set up a remote using the Pronto (I use a wireless keyboard, Pronto's are expensive).

You will need some specialty software, namely powerstrip, and some dvd decoding software.


Really, you should just read through the Meta Faq, then put aside the next few weekends, to set up the system. Tweaking takes time, and is a harsh mistress
