Hello OCN. While deployed here in Kuwait, I build a folding rig. (see sig). I now have another computer. My plan is to upgrade my HTPC.

The folding rig will replace my i5 rig. Now im left with an i5-750. What do I do with this? A quad in an htpc? im really looking on building a low powered htpc. Another thing is i will need a gpu if i want the i5 in the htpc.

What do i do? sell off the i5 and C2D and build an i3 rig?

OCN what would you do?

Im lost you need 5 computers? All you need to do is take one computer and make it into a htpc. Why do you need to upgrade the htpc you got now?

No need to get an i3

imo, id sell all, and go an amd x 2 route. super low watt consumption.

especially if youre living on base, darn new rules stating we have to pay if we go over that limit, lol.
