I'm actually still using a P35-DS3L + e2160 (OC'd to 2.8ghz) as my main PC and an old P4 + 8400gs as my HTPC. I tend to hold onto hardware and use it until it's totally unusable any more.
As long as I can keep the HTPC in another room, I won't need to upgrade. That is, until it needs to be close to the TV, at that point I'll have to get something efficient/quiet/small. Right now I have the HTPC on the other side of the wall as the TV with a 1" hole in the wall to run the wires. I can't hear it from the TV room, but that HTPC closet does get hot in the summer.
Can you do WOL for the unRAID server so it only turns on when the HTPC is using it? I don't want the server to be on over night if nothing is using it.

Well part of that is that I am a hardware junkie.

I don't want to derail this nice thread, but yes I have seen people using WOL with Unraid. I don't use it because my systems are constantly in use thanks to Sick/Sab/Potato.

Finally seeing some of my skins in the setup pics
Actually I almost like this thread more for the interior design than the hardware setups. Some of you guys have nice taste. Really like that picture thats split in four plus the overall look...

If any of you guys happen to be on facebook, you should post your pics on our fan page. I'm trying to get a few to post on our picture header.
