Hi guys. I'm researching into building an HTPC, but never done it before. I'm using an 09 Mac Mini, but it won't do everything I want.
I'm big into retro games with emulators, basic games like Civ V, Sim City. Play 1080p from an external drive, lossless audio, play blurays, will have a tv tuner to record basic cable, stream stuff etc.I'm using XMBC on the Mac, but open to other options of course. Here's what I was looking at getting. Any advice is greatly appreciated.
Corsair 120GB refurb
Seasonic S12II 380B
Seagate 3TB external (using with Mac now)
NMediaPC 1000B, LCD module, IR receiver
How would this work, anything I'm missing or chose wrong? Cost adds up to about $650 without Windows 7.
It's these cans! He hates these cans!
