I'm always wary of the Pacific Geek deals. Everything is an additional cost. For example, with this one, rack rails are more expensive than the machine, the front cover is about $40, etc...

I am looking for something like this that would be cheap. I want to get my 2 audio streams up onto a better PC. I wonder where a cheap one might be.

Unless you are running some fancy DSP audio processing you probably don't need a better PC if it is the one you referenced in the other thread (P3/866). There isn't that much work to do to send out a couple of audio streams.

Well it is using EdCast for the uplink and radiodj from http://www.radiodj.ro which I think is about as good as it can get. I mean I am pumping two streams out right now at 128mb on a 15mb down and 1mb up Cable connection and both sound good. It seems to me if I add a 3rd which I want to do it might choke. That is why I am thinking a better PC might do the trick for me. I mean give my streams a listen, http://www.bogo-radio.com and http://www.theworldofbogo.com the only bad part is getting them fully legit which is costing me plenty. I wish there was a way to get it all under one banner and on one server that will not choke out on me like a UFC fighter.
