Awesome, thanks for the links fellas. I'll go with the receiver/speaker setup. When hooking up the computer to all of this, do I just plug the HDMI into the receiver, or does that still plug into the TV? Easy question im sure - i'm just trying to envision the whole thing.
Any other setups/options? Should I raise my budget? Never actually having a setup like this I am sure anything will probably blow me away.
