Well, for the first time in five years I'm building a computer again. I swore I wouldn't do it and just get an HP or DELL, but they just didn't have what I wanted. Plus, it's fun to assemble. When searching for the parts I wanted I found that NewEgg.com was the best computer store ever. Eat your heart out, Fry's. Below is the list of items that I chose to use for my multimedia master:
Antec P-160W Silver Case with Side Panel Window, big and easy for part installation. It even has a thermometer inside the case for temperature readings: Fahrenheit or Celsius.
Intel D945PVS ATX Media Series Motherboard with Onboard SATA RAID, digital sound, and more USB and Firewire Ports than you can shake a stick at.
Antec 120mm Ball Case Fan. With all the hard drives I'm putting inside I needed a way to put more cool air inside the case... quietly.
Cooler Master CPU Fan/Heatsink. I want a quiet machine, Intel's included heatsink and fan were just too loud, and this one keeps the dual cores cooler too.
In the end I think I should've gone with Microsoft's Windows 64-bit version over the Media Center Edition. But who really knows if it would be any better. People ask me why I didn't put Linux on it instead, but that's because my wife will be using this computer too. And she only wants to know how to use Windows.
