    Small.Pc's

    Hey guys! I am after a PC I can wire upto my TV and use as a media streaming device, I know of the Acer Revo (too many deals on here hehe) but what else is there?

    It needs to be quite quick (dual core), a decent sized HD but have an external I can use so not compulsory. Needs to be small and quiet, doesn't need HDMI but it's an added bonus (upgrading tv soon).

    Cheers

    anyone know where I can pick up the Asrock 330 from? I can't find it in stock anywhere cept scan.co.uk. Dabs and ebuyer don't stock it. I am going to try oyyy.co.uk but anyone have any other places to try?

    Also anyone got any more ideas for a PC?

    I got my asrock 330 from scan too works brilliantly with media portal connected via homeplugs to stream high def movies from my NAS.

    It's about the size of the wii and mine is very very silent - I can only tell it's on because of the blue LED on the front although a lot of people are discussing noise levels on avforums

    Lucky you on the silent unit, mine definitely has a very audible whining noise.

    yeah thats what they are talking about on avforums - the fans whining on some units apparently - people are trying all sorts fo crazy things - I think I'd just have sent mine back if it was that annoying!

    I'm considering sending it back, it is marketed as silent. I just can't be doing without it for any period of time.

    I've emailed them to see what my options are.
