Has anyone had any experience in building a Media PC? I'm looking at building one, so that not only can I loose some boxes from my tv stand, by integrating a freeview/freesat tuner into it, but also giving me access to a 2nd pc, so my girlfriend can happily play the sims or whatever whilst i use the main computer.
I'm wondering what sort of components you can comfortably fit into one.
I am aiming to build one which will be able to run a few games (like the Sims 3), as well as view and record tv and play dvds (possibly Bluray if I can get a decent drive cheap)
I've plenty of experience building full size pc's, but never seen, let alone opened a small media pc case in my life! So any insight into the do's and don't's will be appreciated!
