Anjokid Media Centre Build

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
hey guys,

using old parts and i am going to attempt to make a media centre computer for my parents.

i will need some help with this, especially compiling the checklist for it, i will list the parts i have and what are needed if anyone can help by telling me what else would be needed.

CPU: AMD AthlonXP MP 2800+ Barton
Motherboard: ASUS A7V600-X
Memory: 1GB PNY PC3200 DDR400
Hard Drive: *80GB Weston Digital PATA [Going to get 250GB ASAP]
Optical Drive: Liteon DVD-RW
Graphics Card: Nvidia 6200 256mb AGP
Soundcard: *Onboard
Network: *Need Wireless
PSU: 450W Coolermaster ATX
Case: *Still Needed
TV Capture Card: *Needed

can anyone help out with what else i will need, it will need to be able to record files from TV aswell as Display the TV, and if possible integrate FREEVIEW service into it too.

you may notice that some of the parts i am using are old parts and not up to date technology, i am doing this so that i can save money, i wasn't looking to go out and buy alot of new stuff, just enough to get my old rig working and if possible i want to be able to keep the budget as low as possible but still have a decent product.

if anyone can help me with my build that'll be great

for TV Tuner i recommend the Hauppage WinTV-PVR-150
for case try this
and for a soundcard an Audigy SE should do unless you plan on 5.1 Surround sound

£50 is double the price i was looking for the case, i found a pretty nice looking smallish case for around £40 including shipping so i am thinking that, got any links to them cards within the UK.
