Does your Graphic card on your PC have a HDMI port on it.
If it does you can simply connect a HDMI cable from that port to a HDMI input of your Home Theater.
When you select the HDMI input on your Home Theater it will display your PC screen output and also play the sound via the one cable.
It all depends on the capabilities of your Graphic Card and the Home Theater.
This is how I watch WMC on my Home Theater and get great surround sound at the same time. 3D poses other problems but also not too much hassel depending on your budget.

Hope this helps

thanks for replying to my post. indeed i have one system wired and the sound and pic via the hdmi cable is perfect. but i want to do it wirelessly, i can get windows media player, but the menu is not as good as windows media center. so i want to get windows media center by a wireless connection through my router. i think its called streaming, DLNA.

WMC isn't a DLNA server. I suggest you check out a product called Mezzmo.
