Hmmm okay home theatre has a i5 3570k, 8 GB RAM, 180 GB SSD, 2 TB green HD, GeForce 660 Ti, 16x BR drive, Silverstone GDO6, Gigabyte MVP mobo, 400W PSU, GeLid Slim CPU cooler.
Bedroom has same as above minus the 660 Ti and CPU cooler.
Considering a NUC for the third TV. I'm leaning more and more towards just getting rid of paying for cable TV.
Was going to start a new thread but found this one. So.....
A few questions
1) Anyone looked at this NUC?
It comes with thunderbolt what's the future benefit of this? I know it's a faster connection for data but what would a person use it for?
2) Can you connect an external Blu Ray player to it via the USB 2.0? Can you watch 3d BR on it (assuming you install say powerdvd13 or some such)?
3) This is a non barebones version. With 8 GB of RAM and 120 GB SSD..... good value or go bare bones and pick your ram and ssd?
Here's the barebones version
4) Why would a person upgrade to the i5 versions of the NUC?
