    new guy w/an f150

    Hey all I have been lurking around here for a while and now I am about ready to get started

    my current sound system consists of 2 6 inch db drive component speakers in the front and two 6x8 polk audio speakers in the back and also two 10 db drive platnium subwoofers in the back in a ported box

    I need to get a better amp for them though

    here is what I am going to build for the computer

    My opinions:

    Winsis Wi-12B SGCC/ABS/Aluminum front panel Mini-ITX Tower Computer Case 200W Power Supply
    Ditch this case/PSU. The case is great, but you will likely not want to use the PSU that comes with it.

    Western Digital Caviar Blue WD5000AAKS 500GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive
    A laptop-style hard drive uses less power.
    A SATA laptop drive has the same connections as a 3.5" drive, so you don't need any special adapters or anything.

    There are some of us who avoid Jetway products as a general rule.
    There is an equivilant Zotac board that is generally rated better, but it is also more expensive.
    I would search around these and other small-form-factor related forums for reviews of Jetway boards and weigh that information when making your decision.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

    Actually the Zotac equivalent is cheaper.

    I have both, actually. I have two of those Jetway boards, and one of the Zotacs. Overall, I like the Jetway better. If you plan on using onboard audio, the Zotac onboard audio sucks, the Jetway is pretty good. If you're using USB audio, then it doesn't matter.

    Yea I plan on using either a low profile sound card if I can find a case that will use it or I will get a usb sound card but I am definitely not using the on board sound based on personal experience with full size computers

    here is my revised set up



    ZOTAC GF8200-C-E AM2+/AM2 NVIDIA GeForce 8200 Mini ITX AMD Motherboard
    Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Surround 5.1 SB1090 5.1 Channels USB Interface Sound Card
    G.SKILL 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F2-8500CL5D-2GBPK
    AMD Athlon 64 X2 5600+ Brisbane 2.9GHz Socket AM2 65W Dual-Core Processor Model ADO5600IAA5DO
    Seagate Momentus 7200.4 ST9500420AS 500GB 7200 RPM 2.5" SATA 3.0Gb/s Internal Notebook Hard Drive

    I need to find a better case than I have put earlier and I need to learn about the power supplies a little more because frankly I dont get it
