I don't want to use a controller. I just want to watch 3D Blu-rays and frag people with a mouse and keyboard, all on a box that fits on my entertainment center. Is that too much to ask?"</em></p><p><img height="265" src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/dht/auto/1321373753.usr15670.jpg" style="border: 1px solid #d2d2bb;" width="600" /></p><p>With that goal in mind, Maximum PC built a HTPC that can game as well as play Blu-Ray discs, and comes up with quite a nice rig. While I love the Silverstone case, I would have used a cheaper motherboard and RAM to drive down the cost some more. I have to ask though, how does one frag using a mouse and keyboard while on the living room couch?</p>
