After many fine years of service, my old Intel Q6600 based Windows media center PC is falling apart, I'm looking for advice on putting together a new one.
Basically, I need something that stays on 24/7 and records up to 5 HD streams from a HD HomeRun Prime and HDHR, so Windows Media Center is a must. I'm more concerned with the most stable and power efficient CPU/VIDEO/MB/Memory combos. Integrated graphics are fine as long as they work via HDMI to a HDTV and can handle Blu-ray/HDTV playback with audio.
I already have a blu-ray drive, power supply, and case. Though if anyone knows of a slick desktop style case that takes a ATX PS, and isn't too expensive, I would switch.
