Default Building a Media Centre PC

The media centre bug bit me roughly a year ago or so, I’d had messed about for a while with a Radeon All-In-Wonder 9800SE in the past; however, I’ve never seriously set out to use it for heavy multimedia purposes. When my VCR started to show its age and my mates began moaning about the recordings I was giving them, I began looking into building myself a media centre. I went into the task believing it would be a simple thing to do. I knew my stuff as far as PCs go and I thought it wouldn’t be harder than choosing a TV card and off I went… boy was I wrong.

The very key to building a media center PC is the ability to control noise level hand in hand with proper cooling. Choosing the "right" processor & graphic card for the job makes the family room a pleasant place to spend the time with family members.

I would prefer stand alone TV turner.
