PCs for Work and Gaming AND still use a Home Theater System?

First off, yes, I know what a HTPC is. Now that that’s out of the way, I am building a new PC. I need one for work and I also want to use it for gaming and media stuff as well, since neither the Xbone and PS4 are very appealing to me. However, I’ve been console gaming for so long that it’s hard to play games and not have access to my home theater system. I need to use my PC for work daily and I also want to be able to keep using my home theater and game that way too. Is it possible to do it all from one machine or will I need to keep my current piece of crap for work and just get one of those overpriced Alienware small PCs console things for gaming?

You mean, game on a TV while you work on a monitor? That’s no problem at all.


So how would I do it?
