HTPC newb

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi guys this is my first time building a HTPC so i need your advice.

Here is what i have so far:
  1. ASUS Socket AM3/AMD 760G
  2. AMD Athlon II X2 250
  3. Corsair XMS3 4GB 1333Mhz Ram
  4. Western Digital 2 TB Caviar Green
  5. LITE-ON 4x Blu-ray Disc Drive
  6. EVGA nVidia GeForce GT220
  7. Corsair CMPSU-430CX CX

Can i change something to save some bucks? Is something bad in the build?

Thanks in advance.

Its a decent setup. Do you plan on 3d in the future? If so, I would recommend EVGA GT430, which would be more then enough power for future graphics for a 3DTV. You might also want to consider buying a fan controller to make your systems as quiet as possible and not hear unnecessary noises from your fans.

The GT 220 does 3D (Nvidia was earlier in the 3D game). However, it does not support HD audio bitstreaming.
