My System Specs


I almost did what you have done and spent a few hundred dollars more on my HTPC. I am actually stuck in a limbo right now too. One of the things I found was that, building an HTPC (for me), I didn't really care about size anymore. I was building a full on ATX system which just needed to run "silent". As I now prefer the route of having a NAS living with all my files elsewhere, I don't need to stick any additional drives in my HTPC, so that sorta solves the silence issue. But when it comes down to the bottom line. I found that there will never be an end to how much I can spend on building the "ideal" setup. There will always be little things that you feel you must do.

Speaking of which...I just dropped $80 on a new processor :\

My System Specs


Great thread!

Yes, i am also guilty as well.

Start off "upgrading" a system, and end up building a whole new one, with the old one just sitting there...

I guess one thing to keep in perspective.
We all had good intentions to begin with!!!
It's just that we get a little carried away sometimes.
