Hey what's up, I have a custom built htpc with nothing really fancy, msi 4200ti, dvd-rom ect. I just started starting building it as a little home theater box, because dvd players sucks, an I would much rather have a box that can play all formats, no problem. I am thinking of turning my htpc into a MAME arcade box along with a whole lot of other roms roms roms roms roms roms roms........... he he he. These things are the shizzle, and they are going down in price. as soon as the 16x dvd-r drives come out i am going to throw one of those in, along with a 160 gig hd, and fill that hd with dvd's baby, portable burner box!!!! Htpc are much more than just theater pcs, they are a desktops on the go, because laptops are lame.
