The sweet spot for HTPC is going to be the quad-core A8-5500 for $109 in my opinion. Personally I don't think its easy to justify a core i5 for HTPC regardless, if going intel high end HTPC is core i3 with HD4000 graphics. Have to wait and see it might be that even the A4-5300 dual-core is $59.60 will handle 1080p60, and madvr in which case it will be the ultimate HTPC deal, it for sure will hand blu ray 3D and HD hulu/netflix. I might be building a new HTPC just because.
