I am finally about to start my HTPC setup. I need some of you guy help. I am not a computer expert. I know a little. I wil like to build my whole house around. my htpc. meaning I will like my living, 2 kids, maser bedroom and

& the basement. To be able to accese video, photos, and music from my htpc. I would like to know wat type of htpc i need. Or should i say wat items do i need to build this computer to run smoothly. i have been on tigerdirect and seen a couple of nice small computer for like 300

i am thinking about getting 3 of those for the kids room and living room. but whee i really need help is build a nice htpc. i really don't know wat type of cpu, mobo, cooler, ram or video card i will need. Also i don't know if

i will need a receiver or not i have seen a few guys on here with a one. I was thinking about putting my music, photos, video, and a main hdd all on separate hdd's. Would that be smart or dumb? Bcuz lets say i am

in the basement watching a video on my hhd and my wife in in the living room player mp3's. And my kids are photos in there room & playing mp3's. Would that be better to put separate hdd or it don't make a difference?

I hope i am not forgetting anything
