    So the pro's I like to the Shuttle is the compact profile, spdif, lotsa ports
    in the right places. The pro's to the Dell is that it has room to expand
    (albeit tower size chasis), cheaper then the Shuttle (even with a 17" LCD).
    Anyone have comment or suggestion, or even another brand to consider?

    My current specs:
    Pentium 4 - 3.0 GHz (possible 3.2GHz if upgrade price is under $100)
    1gb RAM
    (1) 160gb HDD (min), I'll be slapping in another 200GB or two (depending on
    chasis room)
    TV tuner card (possible 2 tuner cards)
    ATI X800
    Creative Labs Audigy2 (since it'll have IEEE)
    DVD+-RW/CDRW drive

    What I plan to do with MCE? Capture TV shows, burn to DVD; store all my
    digital photos and music files. Photo editing (not hardcore graphics), video
    editing. Oh yea, use it as a computer to surf the web.
