First time poster here... hoping to gain some insight.
I've been doing a good amount of research and I think I've decided on two possible builds for my new HTPC. I'm planning on using it with a HDHomeRun Prime with Comcast. Heres my two builds:Intel
(I'm kind of an intel guy, first gaming PC I built was intel)
-Intel Core i3-2120 Processor 3.3 GHz 3MB Cache Socket LGA1155 (amazon
-ASRock H61M/U3S3 Intel H61 Micro ATX DDR3 1333 Motherboard (amazon
(heard good things about AMD for HTPC's)
-AMD A8-3850 APU Quad-Core Processor (amazon
-GIGABYTE GA-A75M-D2H FM1 AMD A75 (Hudson D3) HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard (amazon
(works with both builds I think)
-Corsair XMS3 4 GB 1333MHz PC3-10666 240-pin DDR3 (amazon
-Antec EarthWatts EA-380D Green 380 Watt 80 PLUS BRONZE Power Supply (amazon
-SilverStone Aluminum/Steel Micro ATX Media Center/HTPC Case ML03B (amazon
-Western Digital Caviar Green 2 TB Desktop Hard Drive (amazon
Both are very similar in price, the Intel build is ~$15 more
Any other tweaks/suggestions/improvements would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
