Official HTPC Picture Thread

HTPC's are becoming more common with the innovation in technology lately and how mainstream flat panel TV's have become.

We don't have an HTPC build log, and I know more and more people are building them; so let's show off your hard work!

1) You must post a picture with your post.
2) Post your pictures and your system specs (including accessories).
3) Tell us what software your using and how you use it (OS, user interface, any other software)
4) Tell us why you love your HTPC! (optional )

We will have a separate thread for discussion!

My HTPC is really bad

2.4oGHz P4 + ATI HD3650 makes a perfect 1080p playback machine.

Specs -
Windows Vista
1GB RAM + 4GB ReadyBoost
2.4oGHz P4
Pioneer Blu-ray
Custom Computer Rack

Sorry, don't have a new camera yet. My Canon broke
