Hello lovely modders, I've just got my grubbly little hands on one of these shuttles and I need some guidance on what to equip it with. I'm going to be using it primarily for HTPC use and some gaming (Up to HL2 and CS:S levels). I'm torn between the 3.2GHz and 2.8GHz athlon XPs but there's also the semprons. I could use PC3200 RAM on the 3.2 but it costs more. Which do you recommend? Will buy 1GB of dual channel DDR in two sticks but shall I go for value RAM or some good stuff? Might try a little overclocking but nothing drastic due to space and heat constraints. The MAJOR problem is the graphics card and TV tuner. I'd really like to have a dual tuner PVR sytem (one will have to be on graphics card) but I've heard that it's hard to get them to play ball. Any suggestions on a nice combination? Also looking at a spinpoint HDD. The 160GB is pretty cheap and as I will be using a fileserver, space isn't really an issue. Is there any way to make sure I get a good motor in the drive? Anyone know a good supplier? If anyone knows of a quiet DVD-R drive, it would be cool as well. Sorry for the long post, will split it up later if there's still unanswered questions.
