I'm building my first HTPC. No experience with this but want to give it a go. Below is what i've gathered in my research to get but wide open for suggestions.
-I'm going to use it for both XBMC MC and Itunes music player.
-I've got a WHServer with Music, DVD & BluRay ISOs.
-Might get into 3D down the road as i have an Integra 80.2 receiver and JVC RS40 projector that both support it.
-No need for small form factor as i have a large dedicated/cooled tech closet with plenty of rack space. No need for good looking box as it will be out of view at all times
-I have iphones and ipads with iRule app for ip control of itunes and xbmc
Suggestions? Ideas? Changes? Much appreciated!
