Any ideas on the most energy efficient HTPC with an AMD processor? I have seen reviews on E-450 as being too choppy for Blu-ray. I certainly want a Blu-ray drive attached. Along with A Hauppauge HDTV PCI-E 1x capture card, which requires 2.2 GHZ supposedly. An E-450 has the lowest TDP. The AM1 processors are 25 TDP with better performance than 18-19 TDP of E-450. I also know for AM3 processors a 170U is 20 TDP and 270U is 25 TDP. But all these processors may need to be overclocked to hit the supposed 2.2ghz for the capture card. Anyone have ideas?
