I dont have any pics of my setup but heres the parts list:

AMD Athlon II X2 245 Regor 2.9GHz
G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB)
Logitech diNovo Edge 2
nMEDIAPC Black Aluminum / Acrylic / Steel HTPC 5000B

Kanotix off of a thumbdrive in live mode.
VLC for playing video and music from a samba share
Spotify for more music
Firefox for the occasional flash video or game

It cost ~$400 (parts and shipping) about 2 years ago. Its held up pretty well, and it has no problem playing anything that I throw at it. I was running xubuntu up until two months ago, but, occasionally, it would stutter when playing 1080p rips. Everything is nice and smooth ever since I switched to Kanotix.

Power usage: 45-55Watts idle-1080p mkv playback

I installed XBMC, MediaPortal and WM7+Media Browser. Also VLC and MPC-HC.
im using XBMC right now since it now works great with spdif. VLC of course works, I use it for avi files with subs.
I open WM7 if i want to watch Netflix that's not on queue when HTPC is already on. TV already has Netflix app so HTPC can be shut off.

Silverstone case for the win.

i5 something, 4gb mem, 240gb ssd, 8x2tb raid5 (14tb usable), ati 5750
