    Case: APLUS Case Qubic, Black Midi tower
    Mobo: Asus M2A-VM HDMI
    CPU: AMD Athlon 64 X2 4600
    RAM: Corsair TWIN2X 6400 DDR2, 2048MB
    TV Card: Hauppauge WinTV-HVR1300MCE KIT

    Generally using it for multimedia purposes. Wondering is there anything else needed. I already have hard drive, disk drive and 400w PSU.

    Any comments, much appreciated

    Also new motherboards are geared to SATA hard drives, so if your old drives are PATA you may have problems hooking all your drives

    I have just checked the board and as suspected it only has one IDE controller which are designed for your optical drives

    Cheers for the info.

    Video card: I came to the inclusion that the mobo had an integrated video. I'm i wrong?

    Hard Drive: Its Sata (new enough).

    IDE Controller: The one IDE Controller. You think thats going to create problesms in the future?
