Can a media center pc be built for $500?
Assuming the budget is $500 and I have the harddrive(s) and case?
The mother board would need to be atx and the goal is to build a machine that can store backed up or possibly ripped movies to play over the hdtv. I would want a video card or board with a decent output over comppnent or hdmi and with optical audio. What parts would you use in the following categories?
and Os to work with xbmc
