i have a number of mythtv boxen
the best so far is a silverstone 10M case with an aopen i915GMm-HFS
motherboard. most of the time the fan on the 1.87GHz Pentium-M processor
doesn't even bother to spin. with a quiet ATX powersupply (i have an FSP
which i bought in Maplin - go figure) the machine is almost inaudible
the motherboard is expensive (£160) and hard to get
i think it is worth it
oh and by the way. it has VGA, DVI, S-Video and Component output.
you don't want to be using composite, if you can help it
