Hi everyone.... Have just received by new AE500 and would like to build an HCPC to go with it as I understand I can get a better picture this way. I guess I can also sell my exsiting DVD player to part finance it (Toshiba SD-900E if anyone's interested). My existing pc is a shuttle xpc, with nboard nforce 2 video/audio, Athlon 2600, multi-region dvd (via region genie) and 512md ram. With picture quality in mind, what the best components to buy. I am an experienced PC builder, so I have no concerns with assembly, but I don't know what to buy and what software to run. I've read a little about Sweetspot, Real Magic X-card and DScaler, and how that can improve icture quality, and that the Radeon 9600 seems to be a popular choice? Do these complement each other or do I need one or the other? Assuming I will get a better picture from putting it through an HCPC, I'd like to connect my Sky digital box as well. How best to do this... S-Video or RGB Scart? Does this affect my choice of video card? P4 or Athlon? How fast does the processor need to be? is 512mb ram sufficient? I don't want to do anything other than watch sky and DVD's perhaps a PS2 in the future. I think I'm OK with the audio aspects of it all (just use the digitial out from the sound card to my av receiver, right?). Help me someone please!!! I have a plasterer comming over in a week's time tobed all the cables into the walls and I want to make sure I have everything covered.
