First, the rundown of what I will be doing with it.
This machine will be used primarily for Netflix/Hulu streaming content, HD when available and also playing music/HD video from my RAID 10 setup in my gaming rig through my home network. I do not plan on having any type of cable or external TV service that I would need to play through this rig. Blu-ray media is also not a priority at the moment, though possibly an upgrade sometime down the road. I do not plan on doing any gaming on this rig at all. Aside from that, just general internet browsing and such. If it's relevant, I will be using a 42" 1920x1080 Samsung LCD as the display.
So, for the hardware:
Case: Need some help here. I'm looking for a small case (not a tower) that can support a full ATX power supply, preferably black. Think something like this. (Actually, that looks like it might be a decent candidate, anyone familiar with it?)
CPU: Pentium G850 Sandy Bridge
MB: MSI H67MA-E35
GPU: Not really sure here, will I need a lower end discrete GPU for this or will the Intel HD graphics 2000 on the chip be fine for what I'm planning?
RAM: Mushkin Enhanced Silverline 4GB 1333Mhz
SSD: 40GB something, thinking either Corsair or OCZ. I'll probably ask the guys in the SSD forum about this when the time comes.
I'm planning on running only the small SSD in this rig for W7 and a few programs, all my media will be coming from external sources.
PSU: Antec EarthWatts Green 380W
So I think that about covers it, I'm totally open to suggestions, including the new Llano APUs from AMD, I just don't really know much about them.
Thanks in advance everyone.
