I need a new project. It's either going to be learning the piano (see my other thread on this), or building my own PC from scratch. Anyone here done this and care to share some good advice with an absolute beginner? What I'm aiming to achieve - if this helps - is an integrated PC/HiFi/DigiTV/DVD media centre that basically runs all the entertainment and computing needs Shadowifey and I could have. I've decided to go down this route (when funds allow - got married this year and just bought a new car) rather than simply squirrel away cash for the next 10 years towards a high-end AV or 2-channel set-up. I'm all for convergence and integration - so the less wires, boxes and general clutter I can get away with, the better. The other advantage is that a self-build will give me a) knowledge I'd need to fix anything that went wrong; b) simple upgrade capability; and c) a hobby other than surfing the Net and listening to my DAP!! Any thoughts very welcome.
