Shopping nearly complete

Well, I couldn’t wait any longer.  I grew impatient waiting for the OrigenAE cases to become available again.  I found another HTPC case that caught my eye, and cheaper.  The Monauel 301 is a low profile case that supports a full size PSU and micro ATX motherboard.  It has a vacuum fluorescent display and a sleek attractive design.  It should work out nice for my needs.  I’ve ordered all parts for the build now with the exception of the CPU cooler.  This will be determined after the components are assembled in the case when I can see how much (or little) clearance there is.  Here’s the final parts list, minus the cooler:

 

Motherboard: Abit AN-M2HD

CPU:              AMD Athlon 64 X2 5400 2.8Ghz Black Edition

RAM:             Corsair, 2GB (two sticks of CM2X1024-6400C4)

PSU:              Seasonic SS-330GB 330w        

Hard Drive:   Samsung HD103UJ 1TB

Optical:         LG GH20NS15 black DVD burner

Case:             Moneual Moncaso 301B
