Hello all, This is my first post to the bit-tech forums. I have checked out many other mod forums on the net, and I gotta say, this one is the best I've seen. Keep up the good work! So, this is where my project log will stay for the duration. I have started my second major computer build. The first was my main beast of a computer that I finished last year. For my second build, I'm going with an idea that I've had for quite a while. It will be a personal challenge to finish it, but with the all insane amount of education that I've gotten from the mod forums out there (especially this one), I'm pretty much ready to go. This computer will be a home theater PC with a custom built black, smoke, and clear acrylic case, with DVD, TV recording, and some other goodies thrown in. First off, the progression of prototype designs that I've done over the past couple weeks: And then the specs: Intel D865PERL Motherboard Pentium 4 2.4GHz, 800MHz FSB 256MB PC3200 ATI Radeon 9000 80 gig SATA drive Shuttle PC40 250W PSU Hauppauge WinTV PVR 250 PCI card Pioneer slot loading DVD-ROM Matrix Orbital GLK12232-25-WBL Powermate USB Multimedia Controller SnapStream BeyondTV 3 PVR software Windows XP Home I have made some more modifications to the design since the last image above, so I will post an updated image soon. But at least for the time being, I'd love to hear some critiques from you all. And if I can't find answers to future problems, you folks will be my mod professors!!
