    ASRock Ion 330-BD

    Found this thing doing some HTPC browsing, looks fantastic, and seems to handle all kinds of playback.



    Out of stock here -

    http://www.svp.co.uk/systems-pcs/val...mte-01011.html

    Can't seem to find it for sale anywhere though... I'd love to get a hold of one.

    Re: ASRock Ion 330-BD

    I bought one, it's been with me for almost a week now... have it as a media centre running XP+mediaportal hooked up to a 50" plasma tv and it's doing great!

    ASrock has an "instant boot" software that allows this system to power on in about 10 seconds.... it's abit of a cheat as it's not a proper power down but a super "low power" standby which is why it can come back to life so quickly...

    it's a slight tradeoff cause it's still a "PC" but at least it "feels" like it powers off/on quickly when you just happen to wanna watch TV/movie.

    Shouldn't need too much cooling, I'd imagine this offering would do

    Awesome, that's more or less my plan but I will swap out the HDD or add an e-sata drive and use it as a bittorrent box too

    one slight problem with your plan, it doesn't have esata and there's only room for one 2.5 hdd...
