    Anyone have one? Details?

    Looking at getting one and just wanted to see what other people have and what they have going on with it.

    I guess my PC could be called somewhat a HTPC. It's hooked up directly to my High Definition monitor and my stereo setup.

    It's got a Inwin Q500 fulltower case
    Amd Athlon 1700+ @ 2400+ speeds with a Alpha 8045 heatsink
    Epox 8k5a motherboard
    1GB of Geil pc3200 ram
    Sapphire Radeon 9800 pro with VGA silencer cooler
    WinTV tv tuner w/remote
    M-audio Audiophile 2496 soundcard
    Samsung spinpoint 160GB HDD
    NEC 1300a DVD burner
    Other DVD drive

    Works pretty well but the case is quite large (but thats ok with me). The PC is also audible, I'm working on making it as silent as possible.

    I use it to watch TV, play and rip DVD's, play Mp3's, surf the web, and play computer games.

    I was doing all this, plus a few other bits & pieces (actually, I didn't rip DVD's... scrap that) using MyHTPC - it seems that it's now not as free as it used to be. Check it out anyway, though.
