hi i've been looking at getting a new tv and all the toys to go along with it(speakers and such) and at first when i realized i could build another pc to manage everything i was all gung ho but then started to think is it worth it.
i wanna state before anything i'm not looking to do any of this for a few months so i'm just shopping around for ideas and such and not looking at anything definate.

i guess my main question is is it worth it, because i keep looking for it's purpose and all i can find is to watch dvd's/blue ray listen to music and look at pictures. most sound systems are sold with the dvd player and i can listen to music on my main computer. so is there something i'm missing for y i need one other than me indulging myself to have another toy and to build another computer
