The Tech Report has recently updated their systems guide and reminded many people about the upcoming beginning of the school year, except for those who've already started. While that might not be what you want to think about, considering building a new PC is certainly worth some thought. They've expanded their systems to include the "Dorm PC 2.0", a sub-$600 Mini-ITX system with a Core i3-2120 and an MSI Radeon HD 7770 which should not only stream your video but also let you get some late night gaming in as well. Check out all their system builds and don't forget to check out the Hardware Leaderboard here on PC Perspective which was just updated last week.
Not the Dorm 2.0 system
"We've updated our famous system guide to account for some of the latest hardware releases, including Nvidia's new GeForce GTX 660 Ti. In the spirit of the back-to-school season, we've also added the Dorm PC 2.0, a sub-$700 Mini-ITX system that has enough brawn to handle the latest games."
