It doesn't need to be particularly powerful, but I'd like it to be able to cope with the Aero Glass effects. I'm going to rip as many of the DVDs we have to AVI as possible between now and his birthday (5th April), so I can load them onto the hard drive, so I'm going to get a 500GB or 2x500GB drives probably.
Anyone got any particular ideas on any other components? I'm looking for a quiet (Silent if possible) case, and I'm looking to build it as cheaply as I can (No more than GBP500 total for hardware). I'm thinking probably some AMD processor (to keep the cost down), and 1GB or RAM, although perhaps 2GB would be a better idea.
So... Suggest components plzthx [smile]
