i r building a media center.
where i live now i can't get even a reasonable telly box signal in my bedroom and have to sit in the living room to watch any soft core pron and the land lady won't let me get sky and we can't pick up channel 5 or feeview, something to do with france being so near so i have to watch fucking everything on a little netbook. it does not rawk.
got an old nvidia 8600gt from a previous build for the graphics and an arsh load of hard drives, i also have x2 sticks of 1gb ddr2 i completely forgot about just sat in a drawer just need a mobo and processor which im cunningly gonna get on the cheap from work, instead of fixing stuff i'll just BER it and buy the parts back for less from salvage ...an amd black phenom a moth sneezed on? im sry sir but its fucked, i'll brake the news to your insurance company .... ...think i'll go for an athlon 64 though, am2 - can pick-up both the mobo and the processor for under a hundred squid then
bought this case yesterday
its made by hiper, its slim as fuck, just like a proper duvda box, its got a riser card to fit pci/agp and has a 200w psu, which yeah is low but its only for movie films and porn, not gheymes or nuthing. what's weird though is that the psu isn't housed, its just sort of wrapped in plastics, ewe can see and touch all the insides, filthy. its only got something like around 40mm room for a hs/f though so its got to be low profile...
just looking for a suitable os for it once its complete, will see what linux has to offer first, obviousment
