What do you use your HTPC's for? I don't quite understand the concept.
For digital projectors then HTPC is most likely the best, once you set them up to be "pixel perfect", ie use a resolution that exactly matches the resolution of the projector. I wouldn't be so sure about a CRT projector coupled with really high grade scalers and quadruplers though.I disagree- as CRT projectors also have a "sweet spot" in terms of sync rates. While some better scalers ahve enough control to dial into the ideal rates- HTPC often gives far more control. Most of the serious CRT users have HTPC at this point, unless they have scaling that costs more than $10,000. Certainly "really high grade" scalers might best HTPC, but you won't touch that quality for the price it costs to build [or even buy] a HTPC.
