I've haven't seen a recommended build thread for a bit, and I now need help.
My HTPC needs overhauling. I don't play games. It is a simple torrent and HTPC machine. My needs are:
- a MB with adequate video power for HD (Asus M4A785-M ?)
- sufficient RAM (2gb or 4?)
- suitable CPU (AM2 or 3?)
- case (Antec NSK2480 MATX seems to be ideal)
- Bluray and DVD reader drive (any preference here?
I'll buy one of those dual DVB-S cards to run from the PCI-E slot, and also run another PCI card. One day I'll live in a DVB-T receiving area and swap out the DVB-S.
Have there been any changes to avaliable technology that improve on the above choices, but in that same vague price bracket?
Thanks for any help.
