specs at Media Center Components. It will only take you a few minutes and
should not only help when you are ready to build yourself a new Media Center
PC, but will also help others who are looking to get started both with older hardware
and with new hardware. Once the database gets large enough, you will be able to use it to find the best hardware that has worked for others.
Only takes a few minutes, check it out here.
