OK, I am such a nice guy, lol, that as a seller I don't want to sell my parts to one of my friends unless he can use it in its HTPC. What I am looking for is your opinions whether my parts would be a good fit for him. Asus A8n-SLI deluxe Venice 3200 - AC Freezer 64 pro Patriot 2x1024mb ddr Built by ATI X1900XT (512mb) 160gb Hitachi Deskstar (Sata II) NEC 3540A 16x DVD Writer NZXT Performance Power (PP) 500w The sole purpose of his PC is to get plugged into his home theater so that he can watch downloaded content on his HDTV. i am 100% sure that X1900XT needs an accelero x2, vf-700, etc. to reduce the fan sound. Let me know what you think and please feel free to recommend new parts and a case!
