I like watching movies on my current system in the living room, which is an HP slimline desktop with HDMI output. However, the nvidia drivers just were not that great with the 2 latest versions of Ubuntu, so I had to roll back to 8.x.

If you were to purchase a new pc today, what components would you look for, to ensure the best experience with Ubuntu, with regards to building a multimedia pc, with emphasis on video playback?

Dell, HP, other? Build yourself?

I think I just stumbled upon it, and they have a forum here on the board.
System76?

:popcorn:


I like the looks of this one (http://www.system76.com/product_info.php?cPath=27&products_id=95)
