New HTPC build. Final tough Tags: New Build Systems Last response: June 1, 2009 3:57 PM in Systems Share boulard83 May 31, 2009 5:44:09 PM Its for an HTPC but im gona run few racing games on my 46" 1080P. E5200 ( gona OC to 3.0 ++ ) P5Q ( same as my other one ) 4gb (2x2gb) G-skill CL5 ddr2 800 Gigabyte OCed 9800GT with HDMI ( 700mhz core ) WD640 32mb cache LG DVD-RW Total cost ( canadian dollar ) : 500$ shipped 500W not too cheap PSU that im buying from a friend for 20$ (was about 100$ new). Cant tell the brand but its not an hell-Cheapo. Ill use my Q9550 stock HSF as cooling for the E5200. I think its gonna be ok for 3.0-3.4 OC or Higher... Any advise ? i think its a really fonctionnal build for an HTPC + light gaming. PS : Im ordering this week. More about : htpc build final tough xthekidx May 31, 2009 6:02:00 PM Looks pretty good.

My sig is the beast. AKM880 June 1, 2009 4:51:31 AM Nice build, worried only on the PSU though. boulard83 June 1, 2009 5:04:15 AM This PSU was originally on a friend Q6600, Maximus, 8800GTS 320 build. He bough my "old" TT toughpower 600 when he swapped the GTS for a GTX260. If his PSU handled this. It can handle my gentle build . And just for the info. This entire HTPC is going to be an OIL submersion computer. I already have everything needed. I think its going to looks great next to my Samsung 46".
