Assuming my CPU order through work goes as planned, I am going to build a mITX enclosure for the following setup: CPU: Intel Core 2 Quad 9400S (93$). Motherboard: Intel DG45FC mITX (90$). GPU: Sapphire Radeon HD4350 Low Profile 512Mb PCI-E x1 (Modded from X16 card by cutting off the extra connectors from the card - Link in sig, I already had it). HDD: Samsung Eco Green 1.5TB (120$) RAM: 2x2Gb DDR2 800Mhz (2Gb A-Data, 2Gb Ceon which I had lying around). ODD: None. PSU: picoPSU 150W + 144W/12A AC-DC Power Brick (80$). OS: Windows Vista 64-bit Building material: Balsa/plywood plating over wooden frame (I have no tools to work with metal, and I am pretty good with wood. Balsa is also soft and easy to work with and muffles vibrations due to its softness). Budget: ~400$. Goal: Quiet HTPC/Download Rig/Thin-Client for downloading duties (Because my main rig consumes too much power even at idle to keep on for 24/7), watching downloaded HD content, playing older games (Homeworld 2 on the TV, yeah !) and building the most overpowered external hard-drive enclosure known to man I'll post pics of the parts I currently have (And of the new parts when they come in) and the progress every time I get something done. If anyone is wondering about the name: Yes, the project is named for the Macross Frontier Anime character, but it won't be anime-themed.
