Asus P5K-R Mobo
Intel Q6600 2.4 Ghz - as yet not overclocked
Asus 8800 GTS
4 x SATA HDD's
1x DVD Drive
Antec Sonata III case
19" CHIMEI monitor
2 spare 5.25 bays
1 spare pci slot
1 spare pci-e slot
1 spare pci graphics card slot
I currently have no SATA or IDE ports left on my motherboard, so woul need to add a pci card with more SATA ports if i wanted to add another HDD - im thinking of adding a 1Tb SATA HDD. So i cant fit a pci tv card unless i can find a pci-e sata port card.
I am looking to add a tv card with a remote to my current system. I dont watch tv much, but i want to be able to record shows to watch later. I have a connection to a UHF arial available as input. I am currently looking at a Hauppage HVR-2200 for my tv card.
I also have a lot of old VHS tapes that i want to make digital copies of, and i am wondering if that is possible with the HVR-2200?
I was hoping to simply plug my VCR in via s-video or RCA and record.
What is a good remote for the HVR-2200?
I am wondering whether it is worth getting a HDMI capable monitor. I am not sure if the HVR-2200 can do HD freeview?
I do a lot of gaming, and i also like having a lot of space available for multiple documents to be open at once.
Hence i am thinking a single 24" monitor+ my current 19" would work. A pair of 22" + the 19" is an alternative, but i dont think i have the desk space to set them up easily.
Any recomendations on monitor setup/model?
