I've been in the computer field quite some time, and usually have several powerhouses in the office and at home. I keep seeing people talk about building computers specifically for HT...but why? I know about the pretty good ATI Radeon, DVD players, Soundblaster Live!, and all the good multimedia components...but what's the advatage? I have a DVD player, vcr, camcorder, tvs, and the rest of the stuff for my HT. From my standpoint, a computer would make a nice MP3 jukebox, CD burner, etc...but why go through the hassle? What advantage does it bring? Of course playing Quake 3, or similar game on a 100+ inch projection screen in 5.1 would be neat..heh.
