I already have a pretty fast computer and would like to utilize it for HD movies on my 42" panasonic plasma. Computer is: 3ghz core 2 duo 2 gig ram 8800GT 512mb video card 250gb hard drive I want to put quite a bit of video content on hard disk and am considering ordering 2 500gb hard drives and setting them up as a RAID 1 array (mirroring) so that the files can't be lost if one drive dies. Each 720p movie takes up approximately 4-5gb depending on different variables so it should comfortably hold well over 100 movies. My video card has dual DVI outs, so I plan on using a DVI-to-HDMI connector and a 25ft HDMI cable to connect to the plasma in the other room. My motherboard has optical audio out, so I'd like to run a 25ft optical cable to my receiver for sound. Also my motherboard supports raid 0,1 so I don't need a separate controller for raid hard disks. I think this should work, but I'd like input from anyone who has done this. Should the HD content run smoothly? I know my laptop can't handle it, but my desktop looks great on my 19" lcd when I run HD apple movie trailers, I'm just hoping that the DVI to HDMI connection will produce good results on a plasma. I almost want to get larger hard drives as well. Anyone running terabyte drives? Thanks.
