I've decided to sell my media centre box unit as one complete package as I'm really getting out of computers stuff and watching a lot of tv. New house, with new things coming I hope. So here's your chance to pick up a running HTPC, throw in an aerial/Sky video video in and away you go.

* Silverstone LC 17 case, silver, with multi card reader in the front (to be honest, I've never even used it so I don't even know if it's wired in !!)
* Celeron 2.66 cpu, motherboard unknown but there's 4 x usb, 1 x lan, onboard audio, etc.
* 1 gb ram
* 1 x 200gb hdd for system and recorded tv, 1 x 160 gb hdd for videos and music
* GeoForce 7600 GS video, with VGA, DVI and SVideo out
* Hauppage 500 dual tuner card
* Microsoft Media Centre wireless keyboard with USB IR reader and IR Blasters fo changing channels
* Vista Home Premium
* wireless card, currently retrieving EPG and networking for hdd access
* MCE remote
* dvd drive that has never been used, so I'm just assuming it works.

This system is up and running right now, I leave it on 24/7 and it just goes. Retrieves EPG automatically via a pgm given to me from Haventech. I did switch it off last week, and when the machine turned back on, it got to halfway loading then rebooted and finally booted normally.

Rather than strip it for parts, I'd prefer to sell as a stand alone unit.

I'm open to offers, please PM me, it's availble from Milford on the North Shore. I'm currenlty running it into a clunky Sony Trinitron 29" (ahh a classic but she still gives good picture). Not on TradeMe yet, perhaps next week if I have no takers.

Oh and my race seat has sold Laughing

What are the dimensions of this unit? Are you able to post a picture of it? I've been looking for a Gigabyte H971 without any success and this maybe of use. I'm in Takapuna so location is convienient if you are willing for me to come over and have a look. Sadly my criteria is form over function (I'm basically looking for an MP3 and Web Cam device for the lounge).
