Default Need advice on building my PC!'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 ( 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.

Antec 300 Illusion / Antec EarthWatts EA650 650W / EVGA GTX 760 2GB
AMD FX 8320 x8 Black Edition / Gelid Tranquillo / MSI 970A-G43
Sandisk Ultra Plus 128GB / Samsung 840 120GB / WD Black 750GB / WD Green 1TB / WD Red 3TB
G.SKILL Ripjaws 2x2GB DDR3 1600 - Crucial Ballistix Tracer 2x2GB DDR3 1600
Win7 Ult 64-bit - Func MS3 Mouse - CM Storm QuickFire Rapid Mech Keyboard
