Well, I finally built my media pc. It's been something that I've wanted to get done for a long time. I set it up to not only house all of my music and movies, but also to allow me to watch my favorite cable shows for free........until the bastards start charging online fees.
Here are the specs:
AMD Phenom X4 9550 Quad Core
2 TB internal - 300 GB external
ATI Radeon HD 3200
8 GB DDR2 Ram
Vista Home Premium (for Media Center)
5.1 Optical Out
10 Mbs internet (currently clocking at 9872 Kbs)
Gyration wireless keyboard and multi-device RF remote mouse (it looks just like a TV remote with functions for PC, TV, Aux, Sat, but also controls the cursor)
46" Samsung 1080p Plasma
I plan to liquid cool it in the coming weeks and as an earlier thread mentioned, put it in an adjacent closet. And I left plenty of room for expansion which is good, because I'm filling it up quick with movies.
Attached is a photo of my dashboard and movie folder. All in all, I'm very pleased.
Be thankful we're not getting all the government we're paying for.
