Your system looks great!
That PCTV is giving you AM/FM??? I thought it was only FM??
All of their ads, and documentation says no AM :( Maybe I'm looking at the wrong product.. I emailed pinacle a while ago and they told me none of their products offer AM :mad:
Ur right, i think it's only a TV and FM tuner. No AM sorry -_- I end up using my car head unit for radio anyway.
But the nice thing about my tuner is that the audio from the TV is stereo. The Hauppage tv tuner is only MONO.
does the AC97 put out good sound??? how good is AC97 audio compared to a Sound Blaster Live??? thanks.
moahdib = the man!
he was my inspiration 2 years ago when i found this web site
I think ac97 is decent. Of course A LOT depends on the mp3 quality, encoding etc.. .because i have lot of mp3's that sound like crap no matter if you are using $400 speakers or $100 it will still sound crap. Same goes with the sound card.
When i play good quality mp3 the sound is close to CD quality from my head unit so I have no complaints.
albysure> thanks for the nice compliments..=) what u think of the EL light around my case? hehe
moahdib, you live in the LA area, maybe there should be a meet in the socal area. I think it'd cool to check out other people's setups. Also what version of bio and motherboard monitor did you use for the FV24 board to show the temp? I couldnt get mine to work.
I dont wanna have a long tread so I'll post it here
I gotta finish my system first then decide when and where to meet. We need more people too.
I think its MBM 5. I'm using. I am pretty sure those are the right temps cuz i compared by goign to BIOS and it's about the same.
I'm down for a meet =) I am pretty much smack in middle of LA what about you?
I really like that glow wire effect. Thats slick!
