    Default FS: Custom built HTPC

    It's built and running, I just need to configure the software. Will post pictures later if there is any interest for it. I built this for a friend and got the money for it. He needs the money now for different, unexpected cause and asked me to sell it for him.

    Athlon 64 3200+
    1GB Kingston HyperX CL2 DDR PC3200
    ATI Radeon 9800Pro with 9800XT core (WinXP sees it as 9800XT), 128MB, VGA and DVI connectors
    Maxtor 250GB 7200rpm DMA133 HD
    Toshiba 16x dual layer DVD-+RW burner
    Chaintech AV-710 7.1 sound card (bit-perfect output with toslink)
    3 port Firewire adapter
    WinTVGo TV tuner
    802.11g wireless network adapter, PCI
    Rack-mountable case with 450W PS (looks good in AV rack, will post pics later)

    $1250 + shipping. I have the original shipping box (double packed) for the case.

    He would be better off parting it out here if he wants quick cash. Just some friendly info.

    [b]If[/b] he does choose to do that I may be interested in the burner.

    Parting it out would only make sense if I could sell them locally. Shipping would eat too much out of it, I would rather return his money and keep it for myself. If someone wants to buy the computer with less features/cards, I can do that. Just let me know what you don't need and I can see what I can come up with . No TV tuner? No wireless? No Firewire? No video card (I've had so many ask for it that I can easily sell it)? 512MB of memory instead of 1GB?

    Here are some pictures of it:

    That would be a pretty cool addition to an AV rack. Just run a DVI out to your big screen and you're all set with a movie juke box.

    Yep. I don't have DVI on my projector but if I decide to keep it, I have ATI's DVI-to-component adapter for it.

    Plays bit-perfect music through toslink output, plays movies, records TV shows, can duplicate a DVD/CD, you can play the latest games on your screen with it, has dual monitor capability with possibility to configure to all formats like 480p, 720p, 1080p (right now configured to 1280 x 1024 on the primary and 720 x 480 on the secondary).

    It is a cool and fast setup that the other part of me is wishing to keep it for myself and the other part says I need to sell it. I might consider partial trades for 2ch amp and/or surround pre-pro.
