We put together a Mini-ITX system for one of our clients to use as a Media Center PC. The system was configured as follows:
- Intel Desktop Board DG45FC Mini-ITX (product site)
- Intel Core 2 Duo E8500 3.16GHz CPU
- 4GB (2x 2GB) Kinston RAM
- 320GB 2.5” SATA drive
- LG Blu-ray ROM/DVDRW Combination Drive
- Antec Mini Skeleton-90
The system looks really kewl:
Note the hard drive sitting on its side on the right hand side of the chassis above.
We put it together using some components that we had on the shelf so we were able to provide our client with a really neat system pretty quick as their 5 year old clone had died.
Their comment was pretty neat too. They thought it looked like a space ship!
Obviously no drinks allowed anywhere near the system. :)
There are some pretty neat chassis options out there right now and this is one of them. They give us an edge when folks are looking at replacing an existing system.
