    I typically rip my wife's CDs she buys to the computer because in a matter of minutes she tends to destroy CDs. I basically want to be able to listen to all my ripped music(about 40GBs worth) through my home theater.

    I have no desire for a full blown HTPC, just something that can allow me to access the computer through the TV and to allow the receiver to play the music.
    Also going to have it wirelessly networked to my main computer.

    Going to use an old 733 processor and mobo with 512MB of memory. I figured I'd need something like a 7500 AIW to allow the TV to see the computer. What about sound card?

    Also, who makes the PC cases that look like a piece of theater equipment? Thanks

    Something afforadble and easy to use with great DACs (if you need em) is the M-Audio Revolution 7.1.

    For PC cases check out this thread.
