Shopping for hardware

Since I’ve decided to replace my wireless video extension burned yesterday with a proper PC setup for playing DVDs, divx, and mp3s, I needed to do some shopping. The goal is to get something simple and good enough for my entertainment needs.

Quick shop inspection left me with Shuttle AB48N motherboard, Intel Celeron 2.0GHz CPU, a stick of 256MB DDR-333MHz RAM, and Prosource PS-520DF power supply (520 watts, since it’ll have to support a lot of hard disks in the same machine). I’ve paid a bit less then 200CYP (about 350USD).

Now I will have to push myself to actually assemble the whole thing.
