Yeah, I was thinking of reusing some existing stuff. I've got most of
a P4 2.6 sony vaio, ati radeon 9600 3d card, a gig of ddr memory, and
i've just ordered a 320GB hard disk.

I aim to chuck it together to create something to connect to the new
TV I just bought so I can play a few PC games and work as a media
