Not too sure.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have some spare compnents. Lacking memory (until I upgrade this christmas) and a cpu/psu.


I can get a really cheap psu and throw the 2gigs I got in the rig into it.
I have a 40g hdd, but I'd probably just use my network and stream.


Currently an m-atx w/ hdmi on it. No case, memory soon. Have to buy PSU.


I need a really really small case. Something that doesn't look like a pc case. So when I hook it up to my projector it almost looks like its just a cable box.

Any idea's?

and are the specs gonna be good enough with an onboard? VIA CHIPSET -__-


EDIT: Forgot it will be connected to a 480p projector. So hdmi is optional I would believe.

What is the complete set up going to include? Your CPU will play an important roll if your planning to run low resolutions. I've considered building a case with an old satilite reciever body before.... Maybe a cube or a Lanboy Air or somthing? Lots of posibilities with mATX.

I was probably gonna cheap out and get a athalon 64x2 3200+

I mean even though I can't really see the detail in blu-ray copies sometimes certain movies torrents are faster to download than the dvdripped ones.

So I want the ability to be able to play blu-ray without lag. Also the mobo I have it's videocard is ****ty gaming wise, but I think it will play movies perfectly. It's a 512mb (max.) onboard
