    As per my post recently regarding attempting to build my own HTPC and RAID server, I was hoping you guys could help.

    I was wondering if someone could do me a list of ALL the components that are required to build a HTPC and a RAID server.

    I'm not particularly bothered about a list of recommended components, that will come later when I actually build it, but I'm more interested to see what actually goes into one.

    If you are wondering how the hell can this guy build his own PC, when he doesn't know what goes into one, then don't worry, I'm not doing it on my own, my mate is an IT nut, and he's building it, but I'd like to know just out of interest, and after watching him build mine, I would like to be able to have a go in the future.

    Thanks for all your help.

    Steve.

    Also, does anyone know of a website, that give details of how to do build a PC, I am really interested in learning some things about this.

    Cheers

    You need a motherboard, CPU, Graphics Card, PVR card, RAM and pci RAID card and at least 3 disks (for raid 5), case & PSU, CDROM(S) thats it. Throw them all in a pot, mix and serve......
