Default Need advice on building my PC!

Okay.....here's the deal.

I already own a 23 in Apple Cinema Display and I want to build a PC that can handle it. I was thinking about getting the Shuttle XPC ST62K barebone system (http://global.shuttle.com/Product/ba...ew.asp?B_id=29). The thing I'm not sure about is getting a cheap graphics card for this case that can connect to the DVI connection on the monitor. The case power supply unit is only 180W and I obviously need to get a new graphics card for the Shuttle case, only I don't know if the power supply will handle the graphics card and monitor. Anyone with input would be of great help. Thanks.

Bad choice for your base.

Why build a media computer, but only use a P4 478? Look for a Socket T,or an AMD64 (939, not 754).

Shutle makes better barebones, as does Biostar and AOpen. Heck, there's a lot of them out there.

Why even go barebones? For just a little more, you can put together your own.
