Thumbs down Re: Building Another HTPC

Does anyone how (or if) the All-in-Wonder works with the IGP of the Gigabyte MA78GM in Hybrid Crossfire configuration?

Just checked the status of my case and it's on its way! Should be here tomorrow. Hopefully, I'll have a slow day and I can work on putting everything together. Will post pics tomorrow night if not Saturday some time.

I will definitely post up some pics later tonight or tomorrow, depending on when I get done with the case. Just to wet the appetite, check this dedicated thread out:

http://www.hardforum.com/showthread.php?t=1133290

Tons of pics in there. A bunch of people in there have modded their case and made some improvements like turning the PSU upside down, where the bottom fan faces upwards. Some have also taken the HDD cage out to allow more airflow out of the case. Did you know that this is a reverse airflow case? I've never heard of this so I'll let you know how it works out.

I've been praying for a slow work day today and it looks like it might be one. Wish me luck.

My HTPC is a success so far. Stupid UPS didn't come by my work until 4:30 and I didn't get to start putting it together until midnight last night. So here are a few quick thoughts:

* DVD playback rocks. Upscaling works better on my HTPC than I've ever seen on a PC (I'm guessing it's because of my TV's resolution vs. my higher res LCD). VMC works great with video playback and is easy to use. I watched some Sin City thinking that the DVD quality would blow chunks but I was extremely impressed and surprised to say the least. My Incubus concert DVDs look and sound awesome! Can't wait to see what Blu-Ray playback looks like.

* Playing music is fun, everything sounds great on my 3.1 setup (left, center, right and sub) in the living room. I did have to tweak my Sony system to cater more to the music and DVD difference but after doing that, my music collection sounds wonderful.

* The Lian-Li case is simple, yet awesome. A mATX motherboard fits very nicely and gives lots of extra room for your components to breathe. Temps are pretty low (feel of hand) but I'll have to check my BIOS temps and see what they say.

Now all I need is my 500GB HDD and we will be rockin and rolling with the DVD and music collection. I still can't find my USB cable for my camera so I'll have to post pics later. Sorry guys.
