In my bedroom i spend alot of time on my pc. I use it for Net / email / games / movies / and streaming news. Most of the things on this list I got used or as display models, or have had for a while, so the equipment is not the greatest. mostly just showing what i have but its a mixmatch of items. Here are my pc specs windows xp 32bit its overclocked a little, with a zalman cooler. DualCore AMD Athlon 4050e, 2552 MHz (10.5 x 243) Asus M3A (3 PCI, 2 PCI-E x1, 1 PCI-E x16, 4 DDR2 DIMM, Audio, Gigabit LAN) Motherboard Chipset AMD 770, AMD Hammer System 3072 MB (DDR2-800 DDR2 SDRAM) Video Adapter ATI Radeon HD 4600 Series (1024 MB) Video Adapter NVIDIA GeForce FX 5200 (Microsoft Corporation) (128 MB) Multimedia: Audio Adapter Microsoft UAA Bus Driver for High Definition Audio [1002-AA38] [NoDB] Audio Adapter Realtek ALC883 @ ATI SB600 - High Definition Audio Controller Audio Adapter Realtek ALC883 @ Creative SB X-Fi Xtreme HD Audio Controller Partitions: C: (NTFS) 232.9 GB (76.5 GB free) H: (NTFS) 931.5 GB (427.7 GB free) Total Size 1164.4 GB (504.2 GB free) I actually have 4 gigs of ram (32 bit restrict) and will be moving to windows 7 64 bit when i get a chance to. I have the pc hooked to 3 monitors. A Sony Bravia KDL-32M3000 32" LCD as my main monitor, off to the right is a 19" acer monitor i use only for winamp, the rainbar, and chat progs. At the foot of my bed right beside the pc is a Samsung HP-S507C3 50" plasma. The plasma goes directly to the Radeon cards HDMI port via a HDMI cable. I have the onboard audio of my pc disabled, and going from the SB X-Fi Xtreme HD via an optical audio cable it runs to my Sony DAV-FR1. my 2 main speakers are 2 LG 48SA40, the center speaker is Sony ssts500 cube (i have the whole set), and the DAV-FR1 has 2 sub outs. So i have it wired to a LG SH92SB-W and a ssws500 subwoofer. The rears are Pioneer SH435FK. When i use my computer to play videos, movies, or even games, i dont seem to feel the full 3d surround effect. left right center... rear... you know? #1) I need to make my surround, an actual surround. Am I hooked up right? #2) Id like to be able to play a video on the 50" and get the sound to come through the tvs speakers through the hdmi cable. Also if anyone has any suggestions, or a better way to do this, i am open to input. Will post pics if needed.
