So in planning on building a new 3D ready HTPC, I realized my current setup is just fine and ok enough to just use until I run it into the ground. Its ok enough to run 1080 mkv files, runs mediaportal good enough, and supports s3 sleep and wakes from my MCE IR, 3d can wait.
Problem is its in a full size ATX case and I wanted to use that case for a new non htpc build. Since visuals do no matter to me at the moment, would it be possible for me to just stick the powersupply/mobo/vid card/hdd somewhere else and run a long hdmi cable? (its already connected to a 50 ft hdmi cable)
I am thinking of just leaving the components behind my TV or hiding them anywhere else. Can anyone suggest how I can run this without having to buy a new case?
Specs of system
Asus a8n sli mobo, amd x2 3800 cpu, 2gb ram, radeon 5450 video card.
