Since the last part of the HTPC Solution arrived yesterday, i am installing the mythtv frontend on it right now.

ok, so whats the last part(s)?
after some google searches i decided to go for this:

-ABIT I-N73HD mainboard, geforce 7100 onboard graphics, nforce630i chipset, hdmi output.
i read that several people had problems getting this board to work under linux and i have to admit, there is no problem, after configuring the kernel it worked right out of the box without any hassle.

-e2200 c2d processor, not that powerful, but cheap and cool.

-arctic cooling freezer 7 lp, for the case i bought it had to be a small cooler, this one is not very small in fact, but its height is optimal for the case.

-2.5″ notebook drive, not that fast, but it is cooler, more quiet and of course smaller than a 3.5″ one.

-2gb of RAM, actually i got 4gb, but after ordering 4x1gb i noticed that there are only 2 ram slots on the mainboard, so now i got 2gb spare…

-Antec Fusion V2, looks nice, perfect cooling solution (got two fans on the side which are sucking the hot air directly from the cpu cooler), vfd display, builtin IR receiver, volume knob.
