Harddisk 1: Samsung SpinPoint F1 750GB
Harddisk 2: WD Caviar Green WD10EADS 1TB
Speakers: Logitech Z 5500
LCD: Samsung 275T

Install Notes:
Imposible to fit a Harddrive in the low mount unless an angeled SATA cable is used, as the 12v ATX connector on the PSU is in the way.
The back of heatsing on the passivly cooled Sapphire Radeon HD 4550 is expanding across the first PCI-E slot, no card will fit in there.
Install CD-ROM as the last piece of hardware as it gets in the way otherwise

24-03-09, Sapphire Radeon HD 4550 (Passive) removed from the case as it is generating too much heat
31-03-09, Sapphire Radeon HD 4550 (Passive) back in the case. The G45 seems to have problems processing Video at 1920 x 1200
01-04-09, Samsung SpinPoint F1, enabled Acoustic Audio Management (AAM) to reduce writing noise. (Used UBCD to boot into DOS as the Samsung HUTIL failed to do this, and then swapped CD's)

Figure out how to get the VFD working in MediaPortal while running a 64bit OS
Document and publish system configutation

This project has been under way for some time now as selecting the Hardware proved more difficult than I had imagined.
(To be continued...)
