Newegg has 2 great deals this week that you may want to take advantage of if you are going to building a new Home Theater PC.

Hauppauge WinTV-HVR-2250 Dual TV Tuner / Encoder 1229

Hauppauge WinTV-HVR-2250 Dual TV Tuner / Encoder 1229This is going for $99.99 right now AND a $20 mail-in rebate to take it to $79.99! This is a great bargain for a dual tuner card that does ATSC / Clear QAM / NTSC.

No splitter needed. One coax is for your cable or antenna connection. The other is for FM radio.

This is the best price I’ve seen for this card.

LITE-ON Black 4X Blu-ray Disc Reader SATA Model iHOS104-08

$49.99 this week.  Might as well move up to Blu-ray with you new rig at this price.

I’m thinking about building an Atom ION system:

Total: $444.94

If you are in the market to build a new system, now is the time to take advantage of some great prices.
