Well, I'm going to be putting one together some time this year. It's all about the money for me. I've got other priorities. However, it is on the radar. I'll most likely get a new case, a SSD, and power supply for the setup. I'll be recycling my last build as the core of the HTPC. My goal for the HTPC is to be able to playback any file I throw at it, on the network and off. That irks me when my smart devices cannot decode the codecs, be it the video or the audio. That and I want to smoothly game @ 1080p. I'll have to add a IR/wireless receiver and remote. It's got to be usuable from the couch. I'm not sold on a UI, yet.
