    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?

    Thanks

    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
