Hello everyone,


I recently finished assembling my new HTPC and thought I would share my results. I have not received my ATI TV Wonder Elite card yet and am waiting on that and I still have to swap the whole mess out of the Silverstone LC 14 case into a new LC13 case because the optical dirve doors and hot keys don't work on the LC14 but otherwise, I'm done.... :D


This project is a replacement to my 1998/1999 vintage Gateway Destination Computer/TV setup. The following is a listing of the specs and costs associated, this was an excel file so it may be formatted a little funny.


Posting to provide help to other noobies and to get some constructive feedback from old pros.
