Mom wants a HTPC

1224 Views 18 Replies 11 Participants Last post by  burrbit
Hey guys i've built quite a few computers now but dont quite understand this type of build. Here is basically what i'm wanting to do.

Create a HTPC that can stream all my movies, videos, pictures, and mp3's throughout the house flawlessly. We currently only have 2 computers not including this build.

Current parts i have are a Celeron D 2.8ghz and some DDR2 ram.

Suggestions?

Also I prefer it to be fairly small and run off remote control. Thanks

i just plan on streaming like say she wants to watch a movie or listen to some music. Would it better to use a board like the 3450 instead of onboard? Or will it really matter. Dont plan on watchin 1080p since she has the older style tv's

wired will be no problem. I just want her to be able to watch the movies i have on my computer here in my room because i can watch them on my tv but nobody else in the house can on their own tv's.

I hope the WD HD player has normal plugs. Her tv is HD but older and only supports 480 via DVI
