Auction clearly says it's a passive adapter so definitely won't be converting a DP signal (of any sort) to HDMI 2.0. The only way you get HDMI 2.0 out of that is if the card supports HDMI 2.0 to...

Indeed...on both counts--better to have a new board and better than 945G chipset! Only thing is I'm not really a fan of ASRock (many people call them ASSRock, lol). I mean they aren't bad but most...

AFAIK there's no such thing as a dual-link DVI to HDMI cable, not electrically anyway. The cable may have pins for dual-link but dual-link DVI and HDMI are not compatible (speaking passively). ...

Why do you need to build a whole new HTPC just for 3D? What do you have now for an HTPC? If it's not 3D capable but still not too old, wouldn't a simple videocard upgrade suffice for 3D?

I second the recommendation for the Archer C7. I haven't used one personally but very well reviewed and not stupidly pricey. I was thinking of getting a new router myself and the C7 was my choice...

Yeah as long as it's a modern/recent i3 you should be good. All modern Intel chipsets support FDI as well so any compatible motherboard should be good.

I don't have any experience with actually using aptX but TBH it's just another layer of nonsense you don't really need. I explained why on another forum, so I won't bother retyping here......

Uh wait what? Isn't there a ZERO percent chance of any one baby surviving 526 years? You know, given the longest living person ever is in the 120-130 years range?

Well not a big deal for the TIM if you're just loosening/re-tightening the heatsink. If you remove it entirely then you should probably clean it off and use new thermal paste, which probably isn't a...

A Phenom II X4 like a 955 or 965 or something around there would be good. Phenoms benefit from more cache over the Athlon line (like 2MB vs 512KB). There's also the Phenom II X6 but those take even...

IIRC "riplock" is a name given by users not by hardware manufacturers. The manufacturers call it nothing at all, they don't even mention it.
