    Thinking of building a HTPC.

    I'm thinking about building a HTPC based on AMD FX5200.

    Any suggestions on a case (cheapish but, good) and a tuner card that is good with a borderline weak signal.

    Depends what you mean by cheapish, this one from Scan looks really classy, tho not currently in stock.

    Re: Thinking of building a HTPC.

    I think we need to know a bit more about your plans to help you out.

    - what parts do you already have?
    - what is the budget?
    - What kind of jobs do you expect the HTPC to do (ie just local video or PVR)
