Need to build another HTPC for my cousin, who instantly fell in love with my setup, although he doesn't care about an ultra fast performance, but XBMC and storing his movies.
So, here i am back again to build a budget htpc.
Per today's newegg's deal they have a good collection of combo motherboards and cpu. I was interested in this one.. do you think its a good cpu/mobo combination for 125 bucks.
ASUS F2A55-M LK PLUS FM2 AMD A55 (Hudson D2) Micro ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
AMD A6-5400K Trinity 3.6GHz (3.8GHz Turbo) Socket FM2 65W Dual-Core Desktop APU (CPU + GPU) with DirectX 11 Graphic AMD Radeon HD 7540D
I believe the cpu also holds a good gpu... is it good enough for bitstreaming DTS?
Do AMD's make ideal HTPC's. I love my intel i7 though, but this is more budget oriented towards the cousin. Or do you think i can do better for the same price around?Edited by holyindian - 3/29/13 at 3:33pm
