This is what you said..
What????? When did I EVER say that a HTPC can't do "some small level of general PC use"?
AMD Llano or Intel G530/G620/i3, 4-8GB RAM, SSD
Please tell me what small level of PC use any one of these builds couldn't do?
I agree with all of this.
Not sure where the argument is. You chose it.
I was just pointing out that a HTPC should include PC capabilities- and that performance at such should be a consideration or requirement.
More than that- I was trying to make the point (and perhaps the only real thing we might disagree on) that most HTPC's do see PC tasks. It's more common than not.
The rest I am confused about what we are arguing about.
You either agree with my comments or disagree.
Sounds like you agree but were just offended because my words were poorly constructed and your sensitive to this.
To be honest I did not even read this whole thread.
I just saw your comment I quote and wanted to chime in I feel you often say that. Specifically:
"But this is a htpc forum (and not a pc forum) so if you are using it as a pc you just need to qualify that point when discussing your build, question, etc."
I did not realize your argument was about overclocking. I don't even care.
My point was your wrong about that quote. You should not specify anything because this is a HTPC forum and not a PC forum.
I feel you say this often and I don't agree with it. I think any reasonable and basic PC consideration should be automatically included unless otherwise excluded when talking about HTPC's.
You should not have to specify if you are "using it as a pc" and "qualify that point when discussing your build" It should be assumed and automatic.
I don't mean we assume people are gaming, encoding, or planning to overclock. Not at all.
I mean we should assume all HTPC's are going to be used as a PC.
I should have read the entire thread before chiming in- I think you think I am saying more than I am based on previous posters context.
