A PC to be used as a [[Media Director]] has specific requirements: a stylish case, low power requirements/heat emission, quiet operation (quiet fans or fanless heat sink), good graphic and sound output cards, and interfaces for input devices/remote controls (USB, wireless, Bluetooth, or USB-UIRT).
It does not need extensive processing power or RAM.
It does not need a large hard drive, since storage can be provided over the network from the Core or a NAS (network attached storage) device. It does need a DVD (optical) drive, since you will play DVDs through it.
