HTPC forum.

For discussions related to the main web site or the forum itself are now combined into one to clean things up a bit..

HTPC forum.

Postby Cerberus » Sun Feb 17, 2008 6:38 am

This may have been already posted but a section on building and configuring HTPCs. What OS would be the best to use. What TV cards to use. I plan to build a HTPC using my old rig,
(Chaintech 7NJS mobo, XP 2600, 1 gig ram, Ati 9800SE graphics card).
Antec P182.
Asus P5N32-E-SLi.
Intel Q6600.
Arctic Cooler.
2gb Corsair Dominator.
Dominator Cooler.
2 x BFG 8800GT OC 512 in SLi.
Thermaltake Truepower 1200 watt.
2 x WD 250gb sata 16mb raid 0
1 x WD 500gb sata 16mb for storage.

Kill one person and your a murderer. Kill one hundred thousand and your a conquerer.

Would these questions not be answered in the existing General and Recommendations forums?

If we had one forum for every question that would be a lot of forums :P

I just thought it might be a good dedicated thread as a lot of people keep asking me what I know about building them, which, other than the fact that they are computer, is not a lot. They also seem to becoming a source of great interest given the advances in TV and entertainment technology.

I agree entirely. Threads on the subject are of course necessary and I would even encourage a Sticky thread full of FAQ's, but I think a whole forum is OTT.

Well, start a thread, point at it in a PM to one of the mods and we might make a sticky out of it.
We hate rut, but we fear change.
