A home theater PC (HTPC) is a personal computer that is used to replace components in a home theater system. The general goal in a HTPC is usually to combine most (or all) of a home theater setup into one box. There are lots of advantages to this type of setup.
The guide will prove useful for those looking to put together an HTPC, particularly if they've not done much PC building, or don't really know what they need. Corsair also highlight other important issues in the HTPC construction process, such as WAF (wife acceptance factor), so hats off to them for some 'in-depth' report writing.

The general goal in a HTPC is usually to combine most (or all) porn content in a home theater setup into one box. There are lots of advantages to this type of setup.
