Unless you are already committed to the Intel path, you might consider a platform based upon RS780.


The MSI 7411 is a great uATX HTPC board.

What are you guys thoughts on this

I like the fact it is matx to get more space in my case and also the onboard hdmi for blu ray playback.


Seems very good to me but i am still very new to the htpc scene


This is the board I have. So far it has been rock solid.

I used VISTA, but I believe Blu_ray works fine in XP. Personally, for a Media Center, I think Vista is a much better solution than XP.
