If your graphics card supports precise 23.976Hz, you shouldn't bother with this.
With HD 7850 @1000MHz and PCIe 3.0 x16, N16 with CRAR downsample: 20ms N32 with CRAR downsample: 26ms If you use HD 7870, you can use N16 / CRAR for 720p60 contents (e.g. 720p24 with SVP, that requries a beefy CPU, of course).
The main advantages of G1820 / H81 or H87 over G1610 + H61 are better iGPU and better platform: - Precise 23.976Hz - 10 EUs (vs 6 EUs) - USB 3.0, SATA 6Gbps - Haswell refresh (compatible with the existing LGA1150 motherboards) will be available later this year in case you want to upgrade CPU. Of course none of them is relevant to you.
"Smooth motion frame rate conversion" repeats and blends frames in accordance with "whatever" refresh rate is. The underlying algorithm is due to madshi. Generally the bigger the difference between the refresh rate and the frame rate is, the cleaner the image is. So, for example, 24fps video playback in a 25Hz display with "smooth motion frame rate conversion" is smooth but blurred. 24fps video playback in a 60Hz display is smooth and clean.
T version is just the normal version (x34) with a lower max clock mulitplier (x29). You can easily turn the normal one to T by lowering the max clock mulitplier in BIOS setup (roughly).
Celeron is enough for madVR, unless you want to do CPU intensive tasks such as SVP. Right now Celeron G1820 (Haswell, LGA1150) is a good choice, with a H81/H87 chipset mb and DDR3-1600 memory (although G1820 supports up to DDR3-1333).
Rendering time at 720p24->1080p24 with Jinc3/4AR image + Jinc3/4AR chroma is 11.3ms / 20.4ms. Jinc4 is actually worse than Jinc3 in quality (more ringing).Differences between various chroma upscaling algorithms are tiny. You may be able see difference with color charts, but may see no difference in real-world videos. If you are interested, go to http://www.belle-nuit.com/test-chart, download 1920 * 1080 testchart.tif (396 KB), create a mkv clip, then test yourself. BC75AR...
Yup, I use this pattern only for the initial test (that reveals characteristics of each algorithm quickly, saving lots of time, you know there are tons of combinations of NNEDI3 neurons and linear upscaling algorithms). In real-world video (720p->1080p), I see no difference between 16 and 32.
Silverstone SST-SOB02 = Panasonic UJ265. I assume you use the drive only for read (not for Blu-ray write). Then buy the cheapest.
Intel solution is more like an appliance (there is not much room to tweak). A10-7850K is a lot fun, that could give superior image quality (for DVD and 720p in a 1080p/4K display) with madVR. Crucial M500 mSATA / 2.5" is cheap (120GB for ~$70) and good, highly recommended for HTPC. Either W7 or W8 is good for HTPC. Personally I would never go back to W7, even though it's a lot cheaper. (BTW W8 OEM allows you to switch systems, while W7 OEM does not, accoding to the...
