Skip the sound card. Most good motherboards will have a digital/optical out. Just pipe that to your receiver and you will be good to go.How good is this set up? I'm also be interested in a sound card, got my room wired for sound and have a huge collection of music of various genre.
alright, thanks for the suggestions fellas. I'll be going with the 3 HDD set up and I'll have to decide on what kind of screen I want to get. Been thinking of a nice large LCD screen. Currently have a 18.5'' screen (two screen set up) on my ooooold laptop (made in '05) so this new setup I'll be putting together is going to replace the lappy so it can finally be retired.
Also going to look into seeing if I can get my emachines ET1831-07 running again. One day it would just not turn on and it's been sitting there for awhile now.
The 1TB Samsung F3 HDDs are also worth considering.
Okay guies. I need to do a system restore from factory settings. Windows is installed on C drive. While I have heaps of info on D drive and don't want anything on D drive deleted.
So if I do a system restore would it delete stuff on my D drive as well?
Normally a system restore won't touch anything but the c: drive. It will even warn you which drives it is going to wipe during the process. That said, I'd always take a back up before doing such a thing just to be sure.
I have done a few restores recently. It appears to "primarily" fix system files. But occasionally you do lose real files. Do what kiwi says, and back any critical files.
If you can, open up your case and disconnect the SATA cable from your D drive. Then do the system restore. Nothing on your D drive will be lost.
If the system restore is because of system inaccessibility, build a bootable knoppix cd and use that to copy files to USB or other drives beforehand as needed.
Cheers guys. Thanks for all your help
