Post i ordered an antec microfusion
so i ordered one of these for my media center box last night

http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.as ... icrofusion

right now teh hardware specs going in are

Asus M2N68-am SE2
Athlon LE something
2gb kingston ram
250gb WD hard drive
dvd drive (duh)
radeon 4350
Hauppauge PVR 150


the only problem is my TV tuner, i need a lower profile one. there's a couple ati tv tuners at teh recyclers that will do the trick, i'm going to have to test them out, see what kind of quality i get.

the box is running Arch linux with xbmc, and i'll be using mythtv for the tv tuner and pvr functionality

i'm also working on getting a phenom x2 in my gaming system adn transferring the athlon x3 to the media box

not going to lie, impulse kicked in yesterday when i returned the bad phenom x2 and i picked up a haupauge hvr2250,

so far, mythtv detects it anyhow....i still haven't got it working. but it has 2 expansion headers, one expansion comes with the card for extra inputs. but i had a piece for my pvr150 with extra inputs, and it seems to fit the second header on the new card, i haven't tested it yet to see if it works, but if it does, i'll have plenty of inputs

well, i finally took some pics of the htpc

here's the videocard that went in.

and here's the box for the case

the case

and in case some of you "old farts" can't tell, here's the inside

obviously i still have some wire tucking to do and what not. the case is alright, aside from the lcd screen on the front, you have to take it out to pull the hard drive cage in and out. and the screen piece is not really attached to the back light, it keeps just falling out of place. i wish they'd have put something useful there, like a card reader, wtf do i really need an lcd screen for there

I used to get frustrated a lot with a number of projects I had. Then I just decided it wasn't worth the energy so I just packed 'em up and stored them in the storage bus until I get excited again.
