Looking for some input on my HTPC build. I used assassin's guide (thank you sir! guide will be purchased next).

This will be used for OTA TV/DVR via WMC/HDhomerun dual and streaming video/audio from an unRAID server via wired gigabit connection.

I already have a spare SSD drive that I'll be using for OS and a 1TB for DVR files.

CPU - Intel Core i3-3220 Ivy Bridge $130.00
MB - ASRock H77 Pro4-M LGA $90.00
RAM - G.SKILL 8GB $40.00
BR/DVD - LITE-ON Black 12X BD $55.00
PSU - Antec EarthWatts Green EA-380D $45.00
CASE - nMEDIAPC Black Aluminum 7000B $75.00
OS - Win 7 $100.00
Total $535

Go the extra $15 for an i3-3225. Cheaper to get the graphics / Quick Sync upgrade now than later. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819116774&Tpk=3225
