Damn that would be alot to stuff inside a NES but would be so badass!

Yeah it is but, no one ever uses flexible risers cards or custom made heat sinks, also if need i'm pretty sure i can use two pico PSUs to power every thing. and of course a decent 7200 rpm notebook drive and/or SSD. disk Drives area thing of the past so all in it shouldn't be too bad. I'll have to get a good job before I can afford all the parts.

The Brazos chips (e350/450) are experiencing issues with hardware acceleration in Silverlight. So Netflix HD streaming gets choppy. I can't find any conclusive evidence one way or another if llano/trinity chips have this issue or not.

I'll have to look into that, if that's true that would make me have to reconsider this build entirely.
I like the idea of an under 300 dollar build.

sounds like poor programming or a bug in the drivers.

From what I can tell, it appears to be something in how netflix has set up their pages. the hardware acceleration for anything else works fine, just not silverlight from netflix.

Off Topic: Netflix blows they only support silver light and refuse to support Linux because they are convinced it will allow people to hack so every one can get free views/videos. They have some serious messed policies,views and back end.
