Hello! I am totally new in HTPC field. I’ve read about it in Wikipedia, Google and also in other sites in internet. And I also heard a lot of rave positive reviews and feedbacks about HTPC. And it got me really interested to make HTPC myself. May I ask how much does it cost? I’m looking for more affordable purchases. It could be one that’s cheap but it should still be with good quality. Where could I buy one? Thank you!
Looking for a place to buy quality HTPC
You should be able to get one for approximately $350 or so. It really depends on what you have inside the computer. You can check out Dell's Inspiron 620 and Inspiron 620s which is recommended over the Inspiron Zino HD which is Dell's HTPC. You can find the information here:
It all actually just boils down to what components you have inside the machine. If you have a blu-ray player in it, it would make it more costly. If you will be using a solid state drive, it will make it more expensive, though it's not really going to make a big difference on an HTPC if you're just going to use the regular hard drive. Getting a discrete graphics card would also add to the cost instead of just using the integrated graphics processors like the ones in Intel i-series processors. Just decide on what you want from it, the market would be able to cater to your needs.
