Interested in HTPC but aren’t quite ready to jump knee deep into drives and rack-mount servers?
Have an old single-core PC lying around? An inexpensive video card upgrade will let you get your feet wet with HD video without breaking the bank.
TigerDirect has a BFG 512MB GeForce 210 HDMI Video Card for just $30 after rebate.
As long as you have a free PCI-Express slot, you can turn that old PC into an HD Media Center.
