Hi, I am building a new ITX system after seeing those cute things at mini-itx.com
I decided i would sacrifice one of these stuffed animals to the gods of quiet computing. My stated purpose is to build a DivX machine.
Video: Integrated is fine, TV OUT is a must.
CPU: I understand Eden platform (integrated, up to 800mhz) may not be able to play divx's (not snappy enough)? If so, I would need an ezra or one of the new c3 cores. these however generate more heat. Any clues on speed?
Hard drive: if i put one, it will be seagate barracuda. was wondering if perhaps a board would have bootp capability, then somehow i can run this off a network server. however i would not be able to bring the doll to a friend's house
Ethernet: integrated lan is fine, however was planning to use a wireless USB card i have lying around, and hope it's snappy enough to pull stuff off the ReplayTV or another computer's hard drive. wired ethernet still needed as backup.
PSU: this is what makes me think, i would need enough to power all the above and disippate that heat. would prefer internal, will see how much space i have inside that stuffed duck. I have a seasonic 300w spare, that would certaintly be enough but it may not fit! if so, i will need a small quiet PSU.
CDR/DVD drive: would be nice since i could then play VCDs or standard DVDs off this. also, don't have region-free player and i have some Asterix movies I bought (i live in the US).
Any help would be appreciated, specially with a small PSU and mobo recommendation. Also, CPU speed for divx box.
