My new Media Center PC

I've had a tower-style computer sitting next to my entertainment center for years now. I tend to watch more TV shows and movies from the computer than on actual TV, so it works great. Not to mention the fact that computers can run Super Nintendo emulators.

After a while, though, I didn't like the fact that I had to have a full desk sitting there for the computer, nor did I want to shove the tower behind my TV somewhere. Finally, my problem was solved by the new Fusion case released by Antec:

Is the knob just for looks or does it actually do something?

Nope. I'm a poor college student. However, that may change in the next couple years.

The whole front panel is actually plugs directly into a USB header on the mobo. The volume knob really does change the system volume.

The other display can be programmed to show just about anything. It reads media filenames from WinAmp and shows what's playing. If the volume's above a certiain level it shifts to a graphic equalizer. It can also display news headlines and weather information for certain cities if you're into that. I think it can also check your email and let you know what's there, too.

I've got it all turned off except the EQ and media filenames though. It's hard to see from far back, so there's no point.
