    Hi I own a Samsung HLT6187SX/XAA DLP HDTV with a 3DA-1 adapter, and a Onkyo TX-SR876 receiver which is not 3D capable. I'm looking to build a 3D HTPC that would be compatible with what I own and build it to be somewhat future proof, if that's possible. This is what I'm looking for: 3D Blu-Ray player/burner. Silent or quiet case or tower. Silent or quiet power supply. A quality & compatible motherboard for what I need with USB 3.0. 1.5TB-2TB Hard Drive & hopefully quiet. If possible wireless internet built in, if not I'll buy a adapter. 3D compatible video card for playing 3D Blu-Ray's, 3D MKV's, HD MP4's. Also I'm not looking to play games but I would like the card to handle 2D To 3D conversion well, if the video card contributes to that. For Audio I would like to send one HDMI out to my AV Receiver & get Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HD, and one HDMI to my 3DA-1 adapter. i3,i5 or i7 processor depending on what I need to play all the formats I list & in 3D. For a TV Card, I would only want one if I could use a program to convert 2D to 3D HDTV stations, if that's not possible I don't need one. A program or programs that play all the formats I listed, and also does 2D to 3D conversion well. I haven't purchased 3D glasses yet, but I'm looking to buy the Ultra Clears, and I don't know which would be compatible with a HTPC. DLP Link or IR? If IR I would need to buy a emitter. For budget, I'm not looking to spend an outrageous amount & I heard it's possible to build a quality HTPC for a low cost if it's not a full blown gaming machine, if that's true or not. Any help would be great and fast responses would be much appreciated, thanks.
