Page update on 11/2/2011. This is the most economical system that can be used as a Home Theater Personal Computer or HTPC.  It is a basic system that will perform most task, play DVDs, some video games. This system allows you to connect to your HDMI outlet on you TV.  It can also be used as a basic system that enough performance to keep most people satisfied.  This is the cheapest system that I recommend but, an economical system to get the job done. There are 3 systems you can choose from but, you may ask, "Which one is right for me?"  Well,  I like to use the car example, "They will all get you from point A to B but, how fast do you want to go?"  Do you want the Volkswagen Bug, Nissan Altima2.4, Nissan Altima3.5 or a Ferrari.  Need to build a complete system with keyboard, mouse and monitor, then check out my system extras page.
