HTPC Build Advice

Hi All,

This is my first post to the forum. I've been reading some of the very informative posts over the last couple of days, so I know I'm in the right place with my query!

I'm looking to build a HTPC which will connect to my 46" Samsung LCD TV (4661) and Panasonic SA-HE200 receiver. The purpose of the PC will be to playback divx content, view my ripped dvd's, mp3 playback & to surf the web. I do not require a tv tuner as I have a HD-PVR through Bell.

The only component I know I want is the Antex Fusion case so the PC integrates nicely into my home theatre set-up. Other than that I'm not sure which components would be recommended.

I plan on buying the HP Media Server to store all my media on and have it streamed I guess via ethernet to the HTPC.

My budget is $1200-1400 and this will be my first time building a pc.

Thanks for your help and recommendations!
