Dont laugh!

Compaq Deskpro (desktop) case
Intel Pentium III 600MHZ
80GB 7200rpm HDD (E: Windows XP Pro)
10GB 7200rpm HDD (C: Windows '98)
Sony DVD-RW/+RW/RAM x16
Powercolour Ati Radeon 9250 128MB (VGA, DVI, S-Video)
Leadtek Winfast TV 2000XP RM + Coolcommand remote

All hooked up to a Netgem I-Player multimedia set top box for streaming music, movies, internet on the TV via Buffalo 16 port Ethernet hub.

Also on the network is a Compaq Armada M300 Notebook (similar spec as the dekpro) and 4 other not-worth-mentioning sub-500MHZ desktops around the house.

MP runs exceedingly well on this system to be honest, while i save for something more lofty! My dream is for piped files and internet to every room in the house.

    Nice little HTPC box that does everything I've set out to do: Music, movies, TV, radio, streaming media, Emulators, etc... Nothing beats being able to watch a movie and in a few clicks on the remote, I can swap over to playing Mortal Kombat through an emulator and some Modded Xbox controllers. :D

    HTPC Specs...

    See signature for specs...

    The Opteron is running at stock speed (2.4ghz) although at a lower Vcore (1.2 volts)... The undervolting helps my Zalman CNPS7000A-CU cool my passive 7600GS, which is quite nice.

    The 120mm exhaust fan on my X-QPack is connected to a fan controller in front, thus making the system pretty silent.

    Only two mods left to do: Cutting out the exhaust fan grill (honeycomb) out of the case and replacing with a standard 120mm fan grill ; replacing the 120mm fan with an Arcting Cooling 60 CFM / 32 DBA fan.

    Realtek HD Audio 5.1
    2 GIG DDR II (OCZ Value)

    Power Color 550 MCE
    Cyberlink remote
    Arctic Freezer 9
    x64 and yes it works like a charm!!!!
