I am building my first HTPC. It will be based on:
- XP 2200+ "T-Bred B" CPU
512MB PC2100 DDR
Maxtor ATA133 7.2K RPM 40GB drive
Maxtor ATA133 40GB drive in a case with 1394 connection[/list=1]
The Video will be either a ATI Radeon 9700 Pro, or AIW Radeon 7200, outputting to an Akai 42" Plasma via RGB analog. I plan on using the on-board sound solution since the stats look good, and my main use will be for watching DVD, so the sound will usually go out to my receiver for DVD DD 5.1 or DTS.
My question is, am I on the right track? Any pitfalls anyone had with similar components?
