A few years ago, I bought a refurbished HP Pavillion (AMD Athlon 2 2.6 GHz) from NewEgg for $359 (no monitor) and it has worked fine with Tversity. Here's an equivalent for the same price: http://www.newegg.co...N82E16883147294.

I bought an inexpensive MB/RAM/CPU combo on ebay, stuffed it in an inexpensive box w/power added an HD on sale and installed Windows Home Server ($99). HD and WHS was bought at Frys.com. Tversity works fine on WHS

I would simply say that wireless is not a terribly good technology for HD streaming. It may work for you, but I'd be wary of spending too much money.
