My requirements are: 1) to store all my CDs, in FLAC format, and stream to squeezebox2 2) to play games on my plasma, using existing sound setup 3) to archive sky+ recordings to DVD Although it doesnt need to be silent (its going in a large cupboard under the stairs), I dont want it to be really noisy. Id really appreciate it if anyone could point out any poor choices, or where Id be better swapping an item for something better or cheaper. I've gone for a decent chip & memory compared to graphics card, because I can put the former through the company (vat back and less income tax). Just about everything from Scan makes it easy, and saves on shipping.
