I am looking into building a Home Theatre pc. I want to have a small pc that will look ok next to my tv. I am not trying to make a great pc but just one that i can watch and record tv. I want to be able to use my tv as my monitor. My tv isnt very far in my bedroom, its about by my feet. I do want a a fast computer and I have looked into components, but I want a second or third opinion and see what would be best for me. I want to make a Windows Vista capable pc. I would like to have a tv tuner card that has a TV Out and be able to hear sound from my tv, so that I can watch movies. I have a 20'' Tube TV that has the cable jack and A/V inputs, its just a simple TV. Goal is to build it under $1000 without a monitor.
Here is what I have came up with so far:
Tower- Ultra Black MicroFly Aluminum Micro ATX Tower Case with Clear Sides, Front USB, FireWire and Audio Ports
Motherboard- ASRock ALiveNF6G-DVI Socket AM2 NVIDIA NF6100-430 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
CPU-AMD Athlon 64 X2 4200+(65W) Windsor 2.2GHz 2 x 512KB L2 Cache Socket AM2 Processor
Ram- G.SKILL 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory
Hard Drive- SAMSUNG SpinPoint T Series HD400LJ 400GB 7200 RPM 8MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive
Key Board- Any one recomend any wireless keyboards with integrated mouse for less than $150
Monitor- 20'' Tube Tv with Cable jack and A/V inputs
CD Drive- SAMSUNG Black 18X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 8X DVD+R DL 18X DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 12X DVD-RAM 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-R 32X CD-RW 48X CD-ROM 2M Cache IDE DVD Burner With 12X DVD-RAM Write, LightScribe Technology
Power Supply- Need Help???
Any one recomend any changes or any of the things I am missing, thanx
Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly
Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
