I would probably grab one of these Foxconn Barebones ( http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16856119065 ) and throw a G540 Celeron into it. You could get an E-350 barebone system for slightly less, but imho that's really a netbook class processor and is barely up to the task of HD video.

I think I will go with the second choice you gave BinaryDemon thumb.gif

Quick question though, what does the barebone include? Do i just have to buy the processor and its plug and play? Or will I have to purchase ram, psu, etc biggrin.gif

That barebone just includes Case, PSU, Motherboard. You will need CPU, RAM, BLURAY / DVD, HDD or SDD, and OS.
