Currently, my PC in my room is set up for streaming and storage. I'd in the future like to connect this to my TV, and set up a multipurpose PC. Set up to do HTPC, Streaming, and gaming. Many of the problems I thought HTPCs had I've figured out solutions. I'm unsure how my google searches never found the problems, one being automatic downloading of metadata. As I've read more, I realize I'm a complete noob now in the PC world. So much has changed that something as simple as setting this up I'm finding challenging. Currently, I figured that I could build a new top of the line PC that would be quiet, and allow it to do all my needs. How feasible is this? Would I need a second PC connected to my TV to allow me receive the streams in top of the line quality and make sure that I don't get the noise from the .PC? Currently, my plan was to purchase a nice Lian Li case. From what I see they are the best and I don't really understand why you'd upgrade a case every couple of years. I could buy one and probably keep it for a very long time. Buy a new mobo/cpu/ram, my old mobo is about to die from what it seems. I can barely get past the BIOS screen. And then work on acquiring as much storage as possible, hopefully around 12 TBs so I can store as much 1080p content as possible without worrying about file size constraints. Is that too much overkill? I've seen all these HTPCs be so small, I'm confused as to where everyone is keeping the files. Are they simply streaming files to the HTPCs and using a main computer like this or are they actually keeping files on their HTPC? Currently, my PC had 2.2 TBs completely full, and my laptop has about 40 GBs left, and I have a list of things I've deleted that need to be readded one I have more HD space. Sorry if this is scatter brained, I've recently rekindled my interest now that I'm moving back home from school and will be removed from my social life. That means a lot of movies and video games lol.
