Default Anyone heard about DTX?

I think this is great. It's one of those things that leaves my scratching my head going "why the hell didn't someone standardize this BEFORE?"

My System Specs

Up until a year or so ago it was a fringe market so not a lot of enthusiasm for the major players to spend coin on developing it.

Now that home theater computer interest is up it makes sense to revisit it.

ATI in conjunction with AMD can probably put some legs on this by designing integrated chipset/graphics specifically for this application.

That said..... did you get a look at the size of that PS????? I wouldn't want to power an after market fan off of that, let alone a whole computer..... :)

It's amazing to me sometimes how fast this technology moves forward. Something that surprises me a little bit is that they wouldn't just adapt a notebook form factor for use in home theater. It's slim, quiet, and efficient already....

Remember how they said that BTX would replace ATX a few years ago? Well it never happened.

I fear small form factors like those, while they might be usefull in some environment I don't want our big towers to disappear... miniaturization = no more water cooling and next to none case mods.
