Check my OP screenshot guys, thats my latest build idea
Yeah, tough to do an htpc for the same price as there aren't a lot of combo deals available. Also, all the parts (apart from the gpu) are quality parts.
It's so little!

Yea.. Thanks for the suggestions.

My version: (although there are many good ones already posted)
Mobo: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813138194 $103 shipped
Case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811163112 $85 shipped
CPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103808 $145 shipped
CPU cooler (low profile for htpc case): http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835185129 $41 shipped
RAM: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820161283 $50 shipped (picked over these http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231303 due to the gskill heatspreader being taller and interfering with the low profile cooler)
PSU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817139017 $27 shipped after mir
80mm fans (3): http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835427002 $45 shipped (2 of these to add airflow to the case, the third to replace the stock fan.)

Total of $496 shipped before tax

Note: this would be basically a silent htpc but has enough space to add a full size GPU.

Add GPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814161315 $55 after mir
This is not a high end card, but the price/performance ratio is huge.

New total = $551 shipped before tax
DO NOT RECOMMEND for several reasons.
1. 3+1 power phase + 125W processor = ASKING FOR BOARD DEATH BY FIRE.
2. Corsair CX430 =
3. Holy expensive 80MM fans batman

Since it is not a gaming PC, the L3 cache would be mostly unnecessary; Athlon II x4 should do. Here's my suggestion:
AMD Athlon II x4 640 + Biostar 890GX - $179 [95W + 3+1 is a bit less risky, but keep to the stock cooler & you'll be fine]
G.Skill Ripjaws 1600 7-8-7 - $65 (Get two for 8GB if he edits HD videos)
- $102 shipped [there's also a used one for $82 shipped] - Amazing low profile case/PSU, I own both and they housed/powered an SFF PC while on vacation for nearly a month. Except that mine cost only about $50 due to the amazingness of Vancouver Craigslist...
IPCQueen 60MM case fan - $7 shipped (Use zipties to affix it onto the back - it blows out air through the slotted motherboard I/O shield and back - really helps with CPU cooling since there's supposedly no exhaust fan there.
Masscool 80MM - $4 shipped (For the side 80MM slot; normally exhaust, but I recommend intake)
CPU heatsink: I don't see a reason to depart from stock; if you can find a Phenom II (heatpipes) stock cooler that could help; you can get a Scythe 100MM low-profile cooler for $27 shipped open box.
Opt. video card: eVGA GT 430 low profile - $74 shipped, $60 after rebate

$431 shipped for everything before rebates.
This is my equivalent small-form-factor suggestion. There is also my suggestion from earlier in the thread.

Good catch on the mobo, didn't see the 3+1 phase. I will stop recommending it unless the build is Athlon X2.
What don't you like about the CX430 being used for a basic pc? I know it's not a high end unit, but after reading reviews, it is not bad and at only $25, seems like a good deal.

The fans I chose are very expensive, but even running 3 and full speed, should be very quiet. I personally hate the type of sound that 80mm fans make. Was trying to get the case air flow moving pretty good.
