HTPC Build advice wanted

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi guys!
I'm tiered of using my old Boxee Box for video playback and want to get a dedicated HTPC.
After googeling around and reading some guids i have put together a build, but as i have no experience with Htpcs i would love some advice/feedback from you guys.

Case: Fractal Design Node 605
Motherboard: ASUS F2A85-M
APU: A10-6800K
Ram: Corsair Vengeance 16GB 1600 MHz (i have this from my old gaming build)
HDD: Seagate Barracuda 2TB (i also have 2 external 3 TB drives that i use today)
PSU: Cooler Master Silent Pro 520W

I can't see myself needing a BD drive as i have my PS3 for that

I live in Norway, and almost everything is more expensive over here.
My budget is around 6000 NOK, or 1000 USD.
To compare, the parts i listed is almost 5000 NOK or somewere between 800-850 USD.

The two main stores i use is http://www.komplett.no/ and http://www.dustinhome.no/ but they are both in Norwegian so not sure it will help.
