    Media Server PC / Mini PC - Advice needed!

    Hi there all,

    I am looking to buy a media server PC to conect to my PS3. I have a few standard requirements which are:

    * Low power consumption
    * Low noise level, ideally no fan
    * Able to fit a 1.5TB HDD in
    * Have Giga LAN
    * WiFi
    * Bluetooth and IR as a bonus
    * Small as possible

    This unit will be used to download movies from the internet and play them on my TV as its main function.

    Anyone have any ideas?

    Thanks

    Have you looked up the 'Barebones' systems?
    These are really good and are cheapish...

    Thanks Tanchi but you have to outfit the barebones systems with laods of stuff.... Will look into it though as it's an option.

    Plese keep the ideas coming guys...

    sounds like you are getting a bit confused as to this machines function, you need to be a bit more specific.
    Is this going to be a server, a media PC or your main PC, what is it going to stream to?

    so why the term media pc?, i mean it implies you need it to do more than act as a file server, which sounds more like what you require something like a "whs" appliance or "tranquil pc" try googling those terms

    You here to help or be condescending? If you haven't got anything useful to add please don't bother...

    lol some fine attitude..
    seriously no condescension, just asking why you used a specific term, if you feel inferior because of a question there is nothing i can do,
