Hi, I've been putting together a shopping list for a HTPC for TV recording and DVD playback My choices so-far are: mobo = Asus A7N8X-E Deluxe CPU = AMD XP3000+ 400FSB memory = KingMax 512M PC3200 RAM Video Capture ( of RGB out of a SkyBox ) is using a SweetSpot card TV-Out is via a Sapphire Radeon 9600 128 DDR ( I'll get a modded cable to get RGB via the VGA out of the card ) My questions are: 1) Is it worth getting two 256M memory modules instead of one 512M for dual-channel access ? 2) Are overclock.co.uk a safe place to buy from for KingMax memory ? ( all other purchases are via dabs which I have dealt with many times before ) 3) I have no idea what CPU cooler to get - my primary concern is fan noise - I want it to be as silent as possible. Any recommendations ? 4) For the hard-drive I am steering towards a Seagate Barracuda 7200.7. Is this a quiet drive ? I presume the SATA version is better than UDMA ?
