Starting my HTPC build thread. I've been a long-time lurker of avsforum but just signed up and wanted to share my build smile.gif

I'm upgrading from a Dell Optiplex GX620 which has been a trusty system for the past few years but completely underpowered for HD streaming. A new HTPC should also help me consolidate devices as i'm also running a Roku 2 for those times when i want full 1080p.

My system specs:

i've already got a gpu and psu so that's why those aren't on the list:
GPU: MSI Radeon HD 5450
PSU: Antec TP2.0-480 (it's an old full size ATX psu and i'm not even sure if it's compatible with the mobo/case but i plan to try and hopefully save a few bucks in the process)

hopefully amazon supersaver shipping doesn't take as long as they estimate so i can start posting some pix :-D
