    Anyone know about the MSI Mega 865? It's a miniATX barebones system that looks perfect for a HTPC. My current HTPC is down and I'm thinking of trying this little system out.

    The system comes across as OK. For the money, I suppose it
    is an average deal.

    What are looking for in an Media Server?

    The TV tuner in this rig is questionable(which is optional) and if given a choice I would purchase an AMD based system. Not to mention the specs state it only supports Windows XP and not MCE so their is not alot of wiggle room for scale. Seems that you are basically locked in with their software unless you are going to goto Sage TV or something along those lines.

    The more I look at this thing, the more I think you should save your money!!
