    My new HTPC Build

    Ok, finally managed to get some pics and get em uploaded.
    Case is a Zalman HD160-Plus. Truly a beautiful piece of engineering. It is all aluminum, machined and extruded. The side panels are a couple mm thich.
    The Motherboard is an Asus P5E-VM HDMI. This is an Intel G35 chipset, and one of the very few solutions that will send video and sound over HDMI, in HD audio.
    However there is no hardware acceleration on the video side, so it is all on the CPU. Rather than buy a new CPU, I put in a Palit 9600GT (not pictured in these photos).
    CPU- E6300, running at 2.8.
    2 Hard drives, Seagate 320 for OS and Programs, and a WD 640 for storage.
    2 gigs Mushkin Ram.
    LG Blu-Ray/HD-DVD combo drive.
    Avermedia A780 Hybrid Analog/Digital tuner card.

    Ok, here are some
