are there any companies that SELL fully built htpc's? - Page 2

post #11 of 15
Assuming you store your data on a NAS somewhere, and don't need to store HDD's in the htpc, then there is:

Intel NUC (Celeron is good enough for 1080p videos, get the i3 if you want something more powerful) + have to buy ram, wifi, ssd for it.
Gigabyte BRIX (Can be VESA mounted neatly behind a tv)
Acer Veriton VN2620G-UC887L <- My personal favorite, I just can't find where to buy it in the EU.

There are some nice Trinity solutions available too, but idk what they are, since I've only been following the Celeron development.

those are interesting...............

i like the gigabyte and the NUC.....

i was kinda wanting to keep all the HDD in the case and make a whole HTPC box.......however those little boxes are nice, with an external HDD of say 4tb or so those may do the trick!!

im assuming i could do that yes?

Yes.

However since the processor is limited for these small form factors, its recommended to install OpenELEC and XBMC, rather then a Windows solution. Although Windows 8 is pretty lightweight, and might work fine too.

If you want to use your existing remote control to control one of these boxes, and have a spare USB slot (or hub), you can look at http://flirc.tv/.

i already was planning on XBMC.....id install that first off most likely.........then just use my computer to load all my movies onto the external HDD....then plug the HDD into the "box"
