post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I'm looking to put this together for a general purpose use type of computer, mostly for movies/streaming videos and very little gaming. The only thing I need is the monitor and I'm also looking for a low profile cd/dvd writer. I was thinking of a ~24" ips monitor because that sounded like it would work best with movies but I still need to do more research on them. I've never built a small form factor pc and I've also never purchased a thin dvd writer before, so I wasn't sure if I needed any kind of bracket to fit that kind of drive in there. If anyone can help me out with those, I'd appreciate it.

if your really not doing much gaming,you might just want to go with an apu over a video card.

Will the on board gpu be enough for hd movies/video streaming though? Based on what I know about IPS monitors, those would be best for my application and that's what I was planning on using. I'm not looking for next gen 4k stuff, but I just want to make sure I have at least the bare minimum to watch videos in hd without any issues. I have no problem dropping parts out (especially if it can save me money smile.gif) if it won't effect the performance. Thanks btw

an apu would have no issues pushing movies or streaming. i have an older 5800k and my son streams and watches nefflix,hulu,ect. just remember the apu's like fast ram. you'll want to look at 1866 though 2400. ive used 1866 and 2133 with no issues.i also would go 2x8 or better.
