Hi. I'm trying to put together an OK-ish home cinema in my tiny bedroom. I know that to the purists this is imposible, but I'm not wanting perfection, just a good, reliable system that can store films on my HD and play them on my PC, through my projector. I bought the projector this morning on ebay - http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=5811048497&ssPageName=STRK:MEWN:IT and have decided that I should get the following to complete my system: 250GB external HD running on USB2 (will 480mbps be fast enough?) USB2 PCI card TV PCI card (I would get freeview, but we don't have reception here) 512/1GB RAM (already got 512, but it's struggling) Amp - an old class A 250 Watt hifi amp will do. My main query is the external HD. For £110/inc shipping it seems too good to be true - I can offload 60BG from my almost full 120GB C drive and backup my 40GB MP3 player for peace of mind. I'll still have 150GB for saving films and tv progs... how many hours is that in standard quality? Will 480mbps be fast enough for film (DVD, CD) quality? Thanks in advance for your advice!
