johny99: thinking of the FM2 cpu, can anyone recomend this processor
I bought the basic one for my htpc and it is excellent.  I use silent option in bios and it is so quiet. the noisiest component is the hard drive. The picture quality is great although I did download the latest drivers from AMD. Plays Blu rays fine.  But I only have used 720p and 1080i resolution.  Havent tried it at at 1080p as I dont have a tv with that resolution

HTPC Intel Pentium G3258 cpu, Gigabyte H97n-wifi motherboard, , 8GB DDR3 ram, onboard  graphics. Hauppuage HVR 5500 tuner,  Silverstone LC16M case, Windows 10 pro 64 bit using Nextpvr and Kodi

Hi I built a desktop with a Gigabyte FM2 A6 recently, great value, brilliant results excellent video although I did have issues with white flashes after MS (Win7 64) update loaded an old Catalyst driver, a quick visit to AMD site and all fixed.

Oh and feels way faster than my work i5 HP
