  • RAM - $50
  • Hitachi 80 GB - $77
  • Samsung 250 GB - $128
  • Lite-On 16x - $27
  • Hauppaugue PVR 150 MCE (whitebox non-FM) - $75
  • D-link wireless G - $55
  • MCE 2995 Remote - $40
  • BTC multimedia wireless KB/mouse - $50
  • Windows MCE 2005 OEM - $129
  • Nvidia Purevideo - $25

Total = $894 + tax. So $1028.10.

MOST of it would be reused if I wanted a faster board and chip and some of this stuff I have had for many months if not a couple years, so MY cost was a LOT less than this. My outlay was only about $575 taxes in.

The next big stage for me is to finally build a media storage server with the recently retired P3 guts. Then I will look at doing a "no-holds" system for the HT room.
