Hi all, I'm a student right now and my major is Network and Administration. I'm building a HT and just seen this part of the forums. I've spent most of my time in the Audio forum.

My question is,


1. What are good Video/Sound cards to get? Would a ATI Radeon 9700 be cosidered a good HTPC card? I know its the best right now for PC games. But thats a whole nother story.


2. How much RAM?


3. How much processor? >2ghz?


4. Are all PC DVD players as good PQ wise as my Panny cp72?


5. How will the screen settings affect my HDTV? I.E. 800*600 VS. 1280*1024 pixels


5. What are your overall +'s and -'s of having a HTPC?


Currently I have a Panny 51hx41, Panny CP-72 and the soon to be mine Elite 45tx with Paradigm Studio 40's, CC, 20's for surround.


Please I know I still need to do some searching and reading. But please still comment on my questions.
