With the great deals goin on: X2 5400+ BE for $66 and the X2 2400 BE for $35, which CPU do u recommend for a HTPC that will solely be used for a music/movie server. I'll use it to rip DVDs, play videos files (mkv BD rips). Also, I might use the machine to play Warhammer or WoW. Is it worth the extra money for the 500mhz or is it better to save and get the lower wattage BE-2400. Is there a lot of actual power 'savings' with the 45 watt chips?
