What do you consider a minimum budget?

Also, we need more details about what you want/need:
  • DVD playback?
  • Blu-ray playback?
  • Bitstream HD audio?
  • Record live TV? Antenna, cable, satellite?
  • Store a large library of media files? How much storage is needed?
  • Stream Netflix?
  • Do you want it to look like A/V equipment?
  • Do you want to control it with a remote? Wireless keyboard?
  • Play games?
  • Extreme silence needed? (for example, in a bedroom)
  • Do you have a Windows 7 license or are you willing to try Linux?
  • Any parts you already have to use in the build?
