Newish computer advice.
Just sold off my ps3 because because I only used it for netflix and a dvd player. So. A desktop is what I want to replace it. It will be used for netflix, youtube, older starcraft like games, some light image editing, music storage. dvd player (upgrade to bluray at some point)
So I think I want a dual core processor
2 gig ram
40 + gig hard drive.
WiFi would be awesome.
It will be hooked to a 32" tv if that matters.
My first choice was this.
Want to stay under $180

For something that cheap, there's not a whole lot of advice people can give you other than to spend more money.
Since it's going to be connected to a TV, I would recommend something more like this - which busts your budget a bit: http://www.amazon.com/ZOTAC-ZBOX-Int...rds=zotac+zbox
That is the same box that I use to run XBMC on my TV. It is powerful enough to play 1080p video with no issues. I think there's a model that includes wifi, or you could get a USB adapter for pretty cheap.
