I have been researching around and obviously there are conflicting reports about whats good, whats not etc. Basic premise of my HTPC will be to be a DVR, play DVD's, surf the net, do basic word processing etc. This is what I have come up with a basic for the system, please feel free to critique..... Case: Antec fusion V2 Mobo: Gigabyte GA-MA78GM-S2H CPU: AMD LE-1600 (45w) Athalon 64 FX chip CPU Cooler: Zalman 8700 HDD: WD Caviar (green power) 500GB Ram: 2 x Kingston 1GB DDR2 800mhz DVD: generic Sony TV Tuner: Compro Videomate 750 Software: Vista Home Premium Wirless: Asus WL-138gE Approx A$1000 The chip isn't my ideal first choice (4850e would be preferred) but not available very readily here. Anything glaringly obvious I have overlooked? Is Intel a better chipset to go with? Its gotta have HDMI either way.
