    If I was to use any TV or projector (less than $5000), could I expect a better picture using a HTPC with a software scaler than an external hardware scaler?

    More flexibility, definitely. You'll have to pay much more for an ext scaler that will match an HTPC. But there is more work involved in setting one up and keeping it quiet.

    This'll probably be moved to the HTPC forum btw.

    An HTPC will give you a far superior picture for the dollar than external scalers, though it may be less user friendly.
