Asmodeus: OK cheers guys, will go with the 45nm cpu
Wouldnt that passive 8800GT get too hot for a htpc build and therefore require a fan therefore making the fact that it is passive redundant? Does anyone here or that you know of have an 8800GT of any sort in an htpc?
Am also thinking of going 2GB of that RAM rather than 4. As mentioned, I can always upgrade later. WOuld having 2GB over 4BG affect gaming?
