Intel Mini-ITX Build

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
The time has come for my third build of this year, and my first build log on OCN, this build is going to be an Mini-ITX build. This computer is going to be used as a family computer in the main den and it will be hooked up to the family TV. Main uses is slight internet but mostly DVD/Bluray/AVI movie player. I wasn't planning on sharing the build with the family until my dad convinced me that if I pay for the build he will buy the new surround sound amp and speakers. My main goal was to stay under 500 USD and stick with the most compact that I could get. So lets start with the parts and prices.


Link Depot 15PIN SATA power Y cable Model Pow-SATA-Y
APEX MI-100 Black / Silver Steel Mini-ITX Tower Computer Case 250W PSU
Western Digital Caviar GP WD5000AACS 500GB 5400 to 7200 RPM
A-DATA 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual
Intel BOXDG45FC LGA 775 Intel G45 Mini ITX Intel Motherboard
Intel Celeron 430 Conroe-L 1.8GHz LGA 775 35W Single-Core Processor
ARCTIC COOLING Freezer 7 LP 80mm CPU Cooler
LITE-ON Black 4X Blu-ray DVD ROM SATA Model DH-4O1S-08

The video will be taken care of by the on board video via the HDMI out put.
I have just be stuck between AMD or Intel, or I might go with mini ATX. As for now when i get the parts i decide on pics will be posted, please leave comments and tips.
