My System Specs


Quick update: parts have been received and assembled; Windows 8 installed and updated with MCE - thanks Steve! (damn, UEFI install + Intel SSD = 8 seconds to desktop!). Using Splashtop (Best Remote Desktop App | Access Computer from iPad | Splashtop), I can connect wirelessly to the computer with my Acer tablet and the router I bought (using WAN only, with a dedicated/protected SSID). But Damn! I think the Hauppage Tv Tuner is busted since Windows does not recognize it - I mean, it won't even launch the New hardware window upon installation, nor does Device Manager sees it.

It's that or a blown PCI-E slot. I'll test some more tomorrow with a USB PCI-E card. Otherwise, everything works as expected.
