Hey, guys. I am looking to do a pretty thorough upgrade of my HTPC. Except for the Bach case, I'm basically starting over. Please take a look at the following list and tell me if you see anything terribly amiss. Keep in mind, I don't need the optical drive and I already have a LGA775 3GB processor and a Audigy 2 Platinum I'll use. Sorry for the length of the list, but I just did a copy of my newegg wishlist.

I'll be feeding a 720p plasma DVI-HDMI. I won't be doing anything that will require HDCP. Mainly using for streaming DIVx, etc and full size DVD ISOs. Since I can't use my XBOX360 add-on for upconverting, this is what I'll use for that. I'll be using XP for the time being and most likely will do a dual boot with Vista Home Prem later on down the road.


Thanks

How do you plan to get the audio from the PC to the HT reciever? Do I see two digital obtical (TOS) on the front panel expansion thingie? Will you be using those or will you be using the copper digital out on the back of the card?


I ask for my own information.. I am planning something very similar.

I am using and will be using the sp/dif out from the Audigy card. Phono to COAX. All of my audio is just being passed through to let the receiver process it. I'm not siing the front panel box. I hate things coming off the front of a computer...
Especially when in my cabinet.
