Case: Cooler Master Cavalier 2 Black ATX Desktop Case With Analog Dial
& 300W Power Supply,
Motherboard: ASUS "A7N8X-E Deluxe" nForce2 Ultra 400
Video: Rosewill nVIDIA GeForce FX 5200 Video Card
Processor: AMD Mobile Athlon XP 2600+
Ram: 1x512 Mushkin basic green 2700
Tuner: PVR250MCE (Where should I buy this from? Newegg and ZZF are
out. And isn't there problems with some newer retail versions?).
Thinking about a PVR500MCE. How's the support under myth? (I'll
probably go look this up myself)
Hard Drive - ~200-250 gb (I find one on rebate)
Total = ~$600
Not a complete Myth noob. Got an HD3000 box working last month, but
the NTSC sucked so bad I ditched that idea until I research what ATSC
signals I can get either OTA or unencrypted cable. So anyways... for
a remote, I'll use either a Remote Wonder I or II that I have lying
Anyone have any reccomendations on hardware? A64 processors are
almost so cheap right now I might go with one of those, throw a 2800+
in there and it would add on about $30, but I'd lose Soundstorm, but
then again... I'd gain 64 support for future use.
Any tips would be helpful. Thanks.
