Just want to say that anybody looking for a problem free HTPC build should consider Assasin's paid guides at his blog. Excellent and best $20 dollars spent toward building my HTPC. I am ready to pull the trigger on a build that will be able to game at highest settings when complete. In order to minimize up front costs I am building it to be an HTPC first then adding the parts for tv tuner and video card(s) later. Here is the first phase:
Processor Intel Core i5-2500KMotherboard ATX ASRock Z68 Extreme3 Gen3
Motherboard ATX GIGABYTE GA-Z68A-D3H-B3 z68
Memory G.Skill 2x4GB DDR3 1600 "Ripjaws"
HDD WD Green WD20EARS 2TB Drive
Optical Drive LiteOn iHBS212
Case SILVERSTONE Black Aluminum LC13B-EPower Supply SeaSonic S12II 620 Bronze
Keyboard & Mouse Rii Touch N7
Windows Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64-bit - OEM
Optional parts to be added later are:Video Card MSI R6870 HAWK (eventually adding a second card for crossfire)
TV Tuner Ceton InfiniTV 4 Quad-tuner Card
SSD Crucial M4 64GB SATAIII (switch to system drive)
Second HDD WD Green WD20EARS 2TB Drive
My first question is which board do you recommend out of the two seeing as it will be for an eventual crossfire setup? Second question is the selected PSU enough for the final build?
As always thanks
