    OK Just finished ordering the finial parts and wanted peoples views on this system for MCE 2005

    Silver stone SST-LC03
    MSI MB
    2.0Ghz Celeron Chip 487
    1gb (2x 512mb) Ram PC2700
    GF 6200 G/C
    1x 80GB Weston Digital SATA
    1x 200GB Weston Digital IDE
    2x Black Gold MCE Digital Freeview Cards
    DVD Drive


    There's been a few budget issues so things like MB etc could be updated at later date but should get the system running

    Gonna run sweet. Like the case ;).

    I've allways wanted a HTPC/Media Centre Computer, I may build on in the near future, because it seems the way to go. There taking over DVD-Players very slowly, but surely.

    Hope you have a good time with it Dave.

    Get some pics up of the build and the setup if possible :).

    Update Time

    OK Guys, media center is now complete

    I decided to go with a 24" tft instead of the plasma as i think it will be more practical.
