I'm looking into acquiring my 1st HTPC. After seeing Windows Media Center advertised everywhere, is this the best home media option available, or do other, similar options exist, and what are they? I'm thinking it might make better sense to equip. the pc w/ a high end video card (ATI 9800 Pro) or better, and integrate other software options for the "media center-like"capabilities, but I need to know if other media center(photo management, tv record, ffd, rewind, program guide, send wirelessly to other home computers, etc) options exist. Thank you for any/all your recommendations.
