    Shuttle onboard sound issue

    Well, I recently decided to take my old Shuttle PC, currently gutted, and set it up as a "home-theater" PC.

    Time to get naked...56k = nein

    I saw an ad in the Best Buy flyer that came today. Not sure if anyone else saw it or know if it's a typo or what... :p I'm guessing it's just a typo, but cool none the less. Edit: I'm talking about the DDR2, just in case you thought something else.

    A Few Quick Questions Before I Hit "Checkout"

    Well, I'm probably going to purchase some stuff from DangerDen tonight. In particular a new top for my TDX (for A64), a BIP2, and a D5. Now, I currently have an Eheim 1250 stockpiled (moldy >_>) that I could potentially use, but that thing is a behemoth. I can fit it, but would it be worth it...
