Yes, MOST people. The slim case market is niche compared to a proper sized one and that's fact. Go to any retailer and their inventory levels explain it all. Not sure what MadVR has to do with this?...

And that my friend is the foundation behind this whole issue. I couldn't even fathom where to begin so I just popped in a dedicated GPU and called it a day.

The bonus is a quality dedicated GPU...

Exactly. There are plenty of big cases that look cheap, but don't think slim suddenly equals = high tech and amazing. Imagine if AVRs and Amps took size profile over performance, it would be a...

In other words you watch reality tv. Makes perfect sense. Now I know exactly who I am dealing with.

And I think you're clueless. It does a lot more than "simply reduce the effects"

Dropped frames are a large matter in the HTPC world. On average without proper output you'll get one an average every 2-3 minutes, but in many cases it's every 47 seconds. Just because you don't care...

Okay, all of your responses are "well, that's just your opinion, man". It's been well proven countless times that MadVR is clearly better. But whatever, feel free to misguide others.

No, your math seems fine. It's just how you sound. Specifically the "5 mins is too much, maybe I'll get a coffee or something". Just sounds weird. You're making a big deal over 3 minutes.

Well to each his own. As I said before, we'll agree to disagree. Also, the bigger the screen size, the easier it is to spot the differences. On my 100" projector, it's quite easy to notice.

Good questions. I put the 3570K as a baseline. If you get a great deal on it then you can't go wrong. But if you can get Haswell for a few bucks more, then sure why not?

SSD is more futureproofing...

Well we'll about to agree to disagree about that. Especially if you're looking for an extender. My Xbox 360 would be useless to me right now if I could not use it as an extender for WMC OTA.

An AMD APU would also definitely be very good. But how good will depend on what you want to do with it. Ie, how much upscaling headroom you want in MadVR for instance.

I think the stock Intel fan is fine to be honest so save your money on the Zalman.

But I would definitely add a dedicated GPU. The Intel video drivers have broken quantization range.

AFAIK there isn't anything consumer based that is master in 9.2. 7.1 is the highest I've seen native audio go before extra processing is introduced.
