Face it, most of us like the idea of having an HTPC (Home Theater PC) hooked up
to our TV. The flexibility we get with an HTPC over just a DVD player or a
gaming console is enough alone to justify the cost. I have built a bunch of
these for people and until recently, I have never used pre-built systems.
There are many advantages to building a custom machine for your theater, but the
biggest disadvantage is the cost. Lately, I have been using Small Form Factor
(SFF) HP's and believe it or not... they make great HTPC's.
