Hi all, I'm new to this forum I was directed here by a friend. I was looking for some advice on building my own media PC. I have looked into it and have prepared a buying list. Being a Paddy its totted up in Euro, but I've included £stg also. I have some concerns 1) I want to match a thermaltake psu cooler to the case, i've mailed em so they will recommend on for a socket 939, hopefully they'll get back to me. 2) The MB i'm looking at has 8 channel sound. I have recently bought a new speaker system, the sub plugs in (230Vac) and all the speakers are hooked up to it, you link the sub to a dvd etc. I was wondering how to link the PC to this system, is there a card i can get? 3) It's also going to have to be Battlefield 2 ready thats why the Graphics card looks highendish, I am trying to keep it quiet with silent PSUs and the case has vents to directly pull air from the CPU and g card. 4) I have an NTL digital top box. It has a scart output to TV and also an analogue connection ( we get about 15 analogue stations on the analogue connections and about 100 digital stations from the digital scart connection) Essentially I want to record from the digital side, I'm lost when it comes to tuner cards what do i need etc this is one of my biggest issues, how to record digital TV. If there is a better system out there please give me the nod Thanks in advance. Stoner Final note a DVI input for my panasonice 42 plasma is available I'm expecting that all the signals from the MEDIA PC will use this interface, IE I dont want to have to switch inputs on the screen as i swop from DVD to TV etc , will this be an issue?
