Newbie questions PT II...system proposal, etc...(SECOND post)
Hey all, here's an idea I've got brewing...And thanks for all the great ideas in my first post.
http://www.estoretogo.com/showitem.asp?item=SS-SHSK41G has the Shuttle SK41G for $160. This included a 266a chipset, onboard graphics, a 200 watt PS and sound, etc...everything should be there.
Now, on top of that, I'll need a power invertor...
I found this for $56 at partsexpress.com:
As to a screen...well, i'm not sure...I'd like about a 10 inch VGA, but haven'
t found exactly what i want...
And of course, I'd like to find a nice DVD/CDRW slot load drive (burning discs on the fly seems like sweet action!)
I have a 40 GB WD SE HD at home which I'll throw in the system for storage, then I think I just need to worry about input, a nice 4 channel amp and focal speakers all around...I don't think I'll worry about surround sound for now, just some nice 2 channel audio is all i need for the moment.
Oh yeah, and for a processor I'm thinking like a nice cheap 1500+ or so...
Think that'll work? Am I forgetting anything important?
