Ok time to start another build........... rolleyes.gif Yea I kno, I kno. Im almost done with FATAL, and Im gonna put my "Trench" Build on the back burner for now until I get some funds up and the time to work on it. So I figure meanwhile I use some of the stuff I have laying around to make a Nice budget HTPC with a integrated PS3 as a Twist!.......
