How do I construct this htpc?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi all,

I am planning to construct an htpc. I have a ps3, so I am good with online streaming, gaming and bd playing. I just want one for downloading from pt/bt and streaming 1080p sources to the tv. So i do not need a remote or a dvd drive. With high probability i want to record tv programs too. Can somebody help me with a checklist? My budget is around 400$. I may prefer a motherboard of h67 series, but this is not an essential.

Thank you in advance

Lol why is the pop tart an essential? Just kidding. Thank you very much.

Anyway, forgive me if I am stupid, but is this going to outperform acerbic rl100u1002 model? Link is



Since they are about the same price, I just want to see it worths building by myself.

Also, is there a set of mouse and keyboard you would recommend? I hope it is not too big to fit the shelf.

I have read the FAQ, and it seems the reason AMD CPUs are loved because they process 1080p better, is it the reason? What is the (dis)advantage of i5 series compared to this?

I really appreciate your help.
