Hey guys,

I'm building a HTC and need your advice. I have my memory/hard drive already. I prefer a BLACK desktop case-any recommendations? I've decided on Soundblaster's new Audigy Platinum for my sound card, good choice? The only other 2 parts I need help with are the motherboard and video card that best outputs via s-video. My TV is a Sony 32 XBR-400. I thought about using an AMD Athlon chip so your picks on motherboard for this chip would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

I would hold off spending bg dollars on a sound card. Most people just use the sound card to pass the DD and DTS to the receiver for proceessing, so there really isn't a huge differene between a $50 and a $200 sound card, unless you are into gaming. I am betting also there will be some substantial leaps in sound card features and performance in the coming months. Maybe DPL II?
