Out paleolithic Dell desktop just burped up the "Blue Screen of Death" (hardware, I did the diagnostics) so it will need replaced. I was thinking of replacing it with an "entertainment" computer and puting it in the stereo cabinet rather than on the desk top. I've been away from HeadFi for a while so I'm out of the loop, So:
Question: what's a good "bare bones-ish" computer with a small energy signature and a cabinet that will fit on a stereo rack and have enough expandability to accept a video card w/HDMI out? I'll be running the audio through a squeezebox so other than onboard sound, I'm good. I have plenty O'hard drives (it always seems that the MoBo goes for me) and DVD drives too. We'll be using the TV as a monitor and have a wireless keyboard.
