Updated my HTPC from initial build over two years ago.

BEFORE (Jan 2015) - A10-5800K, F2A85-V PRO, and GTX 770.



AFTER (May 2017) - 4790K, Z97-A, and GTX 1070.


Still mainly used as an HTPC, but more than ready for some occasional gaming on a 1080P tv.

I probably won't be buying a smart tv anytime soon, or a tv in general. HTPC is connected to my projector for netflix, stored movies from the server, and light casual gaming smile.gif

I have four 4k TVs in my house, a full dedicated theater room with pj. I wanted to do a htpc, but now it doesn’t make sense with how many other options are out there. Running Plex off my main pc over my network can be done off something as simple as a wdtv.

Shame because htpc is such a cool concept, just poorly executed on the software side. For apps that play surround sound and 4k

I know there are a bunch of cool solutions out there that are very compact, but I still like my HTPC for ease of use. Simple logitech K400 and a 360 controller for legacy games like need for speed most wanted, carbon, underground 2, and a bunch of sega emulated games.

I have other options in the house, too, but still like having the HTPC for when I want a computer on the TV in the living room.

If winning were easy, losers would do it.
