What about if you use the Optical out, will that pass 5.1 or higher, as on the Gigabyte 780G board.

No. Most motherboard digital audio are not 5.1 yet. You have to use analogue for 5.1 or 7.1. This is on many motherboards but never stated in the specs.

This is kind of an overkill for an HTPC , i would try and save some money bro.

Listen to Duckieho , he knows what he is talking about , especially since hes already built one himself.

Also , water cooling an HTPC is cool and all , but is basically worthless.

Say I have a fairly relevant question if you don't mind a quick thread-jacking... I've got a 6600GT that I was going to put into an HTPC. would this be enough for HD playback, or would it be insufficient?

Oh, and to add my two cents to this thread, Duckie is right about the gpu, go with the 34xx. Also, I would go AMD to save a few bucks too. You may want to get a bigger hard drive too if you want to keep a bunch of movies and recordings on there.

The 6600GT supports Pure Video 1. That means it does some hardware decoding but is not as good as Pure Video 2 or Avivo.

Ponder, ponder... I don't like how the HD3450 doesn't include the HDMI adapter. I downgraded to the E2140 to save some money. The only reason why I'm doing watercooling is because of the spare watercooling stuff in my house. I might use the Gigabyte 780G mobo. Just wondering what CPU I should get for it.

If you just go with a 780G, it has a HDMI port built in.

Does the AMD Athlon 64 X2 5000+ look ok? I'm also wondering if a MicroATX board would look strange in a Lian-Li V1000.

Yes, that processor would work just fine! I think as long as you stay above around 1.8ghz dual core, you should be good!
