For years, I have kept my HTPC and my gaming computers seperate. I was recently running an Athlon x3 455 and a Radeon 6450 for my HTPC. I decided that I wanted to game a little on the projector setup (Skyrim, Torchlight, Guild Wars), although I will keep the uber gaming rig for FPS and hardcore PC gaming.
HTPC parts arrived yesterday, assembled, constructed, installed, done!
All the boxes, awaiting the unpacking!
The nMedia 6000B. Its a badass case, no question.
MSI mATX 1155 motherboard (Sandy Bridge). Sooooo tiny. Funny, because it has 4 DIMMS, whereas AMD mATX boards usually have only 2. Still, only using 2 anyways (2x4GB).
Why did I bother getting such a huge case? LOL!
CoolerMaster Extreme 475 in place. A SUPER quiet power supply...more than enough for a 7770, a 128GB SSD, and a single spinning 500GB HD (5400rpm).
Everything in, room to spare, power to spare...just need to finish the cable management.
