i know there are dozens of threads about this out there and yes, I've already read Poofyhairguy's HTPC Recommendation Thread and eskro's Your Very First HTPC? But Where do You Start? Thread.
I just wanted to have some input from guys who know their stuff about the build I have in mind.
Right now I'm using my PS3 and PS3 Media Server to stream via Component to my old tube television. Since I'm going to buy a HDTV now (LG 47LE8500) I'd like to get a HTPC too. That being said, here's the build I have in mind...
1x Zotac ION ITX A-E
1x Kingston SSDNow S100 8GB
2x WD Caviar Green 2TB
1x Antec Fusion Remote Case
That's the build so far. Personally I'd go for NAS but I don't have the money for that atm. Perhaps later that's an option. I'd also like to go for 3x 2TB but the Antec Case has only room for 2 HDDs if I recall right.
As far as wiring the thing up goes, I'd like to go directly from the board to the HDTV via HDMI. And later I'd go from the board to my 'needs-to-be-bought-Onkyo TX-SR608' via HDMI.
So yea, that's the plan. Oh yea, I want to use the HTPC only for streaming Audio (Music), Video (1080p, Bluray, h.264) and perhaps some NES/SNES games via an Emulator though this is optional. The main point is streaming Audio/Video. And as the thread title suggests, I want to install the Live Distro of XBMC.
Ok, enough said. Now I'd like to hear your feedback
€dit: Forgot to mention that I'd love to use the Aeon skin cause I love the looks of it and that I already indexed my media via the program 'Media Companion'. So the infos about the actors, the movie itself, the folder.jpg and the fanart.jpg are in the folder of the movie. So it's
