I've decided to go the PJ route for the new garage conversion. The PJ is likely to be a Panny AE500 or Sanyo Z2. I had set my mind on getting a new DVD player, probably the Denon A11, until it became obvious there are current problems, DVI related. 'theritz' kindly reminded me to look at HCPC's again, so here I am! I have read a stack of threads on the forum, but still have quite a few questions. I'd be grateful for any input. Money is not the key driver here, quality counts. Current equipment in sig. Here goes.... a) is there a recommendation for a specific DVD rom drive? I do not need rewriting facilities or anything fancy b) sound is vital, what is the absolute best way to connect the HCPC to my Tag. Would this be helped with a sound card and if so, which one? SACD/DVDA and CD WILL NOT be played through the HCPC c) the ability to play games would be fantastic. However, the Rad 9600 is probably a bit underpowered, although fanless. Is there a better choice, or can a more powerful card (I'm using a 9800 pro in the current system) be quietened d) there will be a Sky+ box next to the HCPC. What is the best way to connect this to the HCPC. Is there a recommended card? e) I plan to use AMD processer, perhaps even the new 64bit jobs. Is there a recommended chip coller rather than the standard retail unit f) Can someone recommend the most quiet power supply g) are mobo fans noisy? Are there good and bad mobo's for noise or should they all be treated equal when buying h) same again for HD's, is there a recommended quiet HD or would you recommend a device to make the HD quiet, if so which one? i) Is there such a thing as a sound-proofed PC case? And finally, I've seen an acoustic cupboard for a PC for £700. This seems excessive. But is it worth considering this? Is there a cheaper alternative. Huge apologies for all these questions (some probably daft!), and thanks for any help.
