It probably wont be on sale come purchase time... I'll look into the prior mentioned earthwatts. I guess I don't need that case either then. Though I did like the style.

You think that MOBO will handle 1080p BlueRay?

my knowledge of htpc's ( Ihave one), min 2gb of ram, if amd, min of athlon x2, nice video card especially if you are playing bluray movies.

oh and of course I highly recommend xbmc for organization of all your media and nice layout too.

@ y2adre

Please don't double post, if you have something else to add to the conversation and no one has posted a reply since your last post (within a 24 hr. period), please use the edit button (looks like a pencil) to add it to your previous post.
