    It all looks good minues the Windows Media Center Edition but I noticed you are going to be moving onto the Vista Upgrade, thats good. Looks good by me.

    Could always spring for a 200GB external Maxtor One Touch III - I believe it's around $125 from Dell.

    Just gone and built myself a new dual core shuttle pc, well cool and only cost me "just" shy of £800. :D
     
  14. Nice, very nice! And has been said you can always just get an external HDD if needs be.

    Rush - when are you coming to Norwich?! You keep saying next time, next time, but you never tell me! :dead:
