Windows XP Media Centre OS
P4 3.2Ghz HT Processor
150Gig Hard Disc
Intel 82915G/GV/910GL Display Card
Realtek Audio 5.1
½ Gig Ram (Worth taking up to 1 gig at some point)
Built in Card Reader for all formats
DV input
Wireless High Speed card installed but also has on-board Ethernet
Custom built not shop bought so runs fast
Consists of CPU Unit Keyboard and mouse or Media Centre Wireless all in one Keyboard and mouse Windows Media Centre Remote Control.

Thanks guys

wouldnt bother
Bit pricey tbh. :thumbsup:
slightly overpriced and not very future proof (cant be upgraded for future us e.g HD etc)
I wouldnt say the spec is very good for the price, might be worth looking elsewhere.

"Custom built not shop bought so runs fast" - LMAO :-D
Cheers guys think I will give it a miss, anyone point me somewhere with a good deal?

prescot chips which are the fastest this mainboard can take are very unsuitable for media centre use, use far too much power and require a lot of cooling so will be too noisy for lounge use
