Sometime ago, we had a few readers request an update to our build guides we published shortly after we started the site. I will remind our readers of a couple important points. Ultimately we pick a piece of hardware because we feel it offers the best bang for the buck. I would imagine that there will be a lot of people that disagree with our specific choices but we hope the guiding philosophy we lay out in our guide helps you build a successful HTPC. I simply won't pick a piece of hardware and say use this because I am damn smart. Instead, I hope to provide that reader with an understanding of what we are trying to do and he/she should be able to apply that to the hardware you are interested in.
As well, keep in mind there are a many configurations and uses an HTPC can take. As such, I am going to try and tackle a few different builds based on budget and network topology. Missing Remote
