My Wife DOES approve!

post #1 of 25

OF this HTPC...

Because it has WMC I can record her shows burn them and send them to her on DVD to Kuwait!

Windows 7 Professional, dedicated HTPC using WIndows Media Center in Conjunction with WIndows Home server

ASUS M4A785-M AM3/AM2+/AM2 AMD 785G HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
AMD Phenom II X4 925 Deneb 2.8GHz Socket AM3 95W Quad-Core Processor
CORSAIR XMS2 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model TWIN2X4096-6400C5
Crucial M4 SSD 64GB (boot) drive
Seagate 120GB 5400RPM drive for Temporary TV storage (they are automatically archived to the WHS)
HD 5750 (prob overkill)
Ultra 550 PSU AND Ultra Aluminus Case (leftovers from my Gaming PC in 2007)
Happuage Collossus Video capture cards (one PCI and the other PCIE)
Two Directv HD recievers
HP IR Recievers wih HP remote

I realize the HDD and SSD placement are kinda ghetto, I just reused this case rather than spending money on a new one. PSU seems healthy enough.. The PC only draws 110W at MOST... And there is no need for an optical drive because in the rare occasion I do ge a disc I rip it with the WHS and stream if over the network.

NOTE: I did reuse some WMC pics from my old HTPC which was an HP laptop.. DIdn't take new pics because it's the same.. And we have a NEW tv now.

I realized today that I had an H70 sitting around doing nothing... So I combined that with the Eneremax Fan that came with my PSU and put it into the HTPC!
