Since I recently took pictures of my apartment (mom wanted to see ), figured I'd delurk and share. I'm a broke-ass grad student, so I've put everything together slowly and from sales/used/b-stock.
Mac Mini 1.66Ghz CD, 1GB, 60GB, OS X 10.5.8 running Plex, controlled by an Apple remote with a Logitech k400 as backup/for browsing.
Hooked into an Onkyo HTS790 w/7.1 (HTIB that was a pretty good deal) and a Westinghouse 32" (the "eco" model that I nabbed for cheap on black friday a couple of years ago).
Mac Mini 2.4Ghz C2D, 4GB, 320GB, OS X 10.7.5 running Plex, controlled by an Apple remote with a Logitech diNovo mini as backup.
Hooked into Dell 2005fpw, and a Cambridge Soundworks sub that's driving a couple of cheap old Advents.
Here's the server they draw from:
18TB system running SuSE in the office. I just use SAMBA and Plex media server on the Mac minis to keep everything browsable.
Well, my setup isn't as nice as some I've seen on here, this is what I have.

The idea behind the component selection for the HTPC was to give it enough power for HTPC duties as well as gaming while keeping power draw to a minimum. Believe it or not the G530 handles everything I throw at it very well. Also, sorry about the picture quality, but the Galaxy Nexus has a terrible camera.
I'll post the pictures of the actual setup when I get them imported, but for now I've got this; Raspberry PI Model B, OC'd to 'Fast' setting. I had a buddy at work, who's our product photographer, take this today. The case we, another coworker and I, milled at work. The bottom is a glossy plastic and the top is clear acrylic, held together by some hex screws.
