using dell XPS 8000 as media brains

by astropresident / November 7, 2009 11:01 PM PST

Want to use desktop as brains of media center....

1) Want to use LCD tv as primary display when using computer
2) want to use computer as DVD/Blue ray source for tv
3) and then of course want good sound to speakers!!

I talked briefly with Dell service online and they said that I could do all that including wireless keyboard and mouse

My biggest concern is how much quality, if any, i risk losing by not using dedicated computer screen for display and vice versa, how much quality i risk losing by not using dedicated dvd/blueray player for TV.

Thanks in advance to all recommends!!!

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
