Hey guys I would very much appreciate it if you could reccomend a build for me. I do not plan on playing any games on it quit frankly. I might end up using it as an HTPC. So HD video playback is must. Optical audio sound port please. I also notice gaming pc builds around 600 so I think it can be possible to go lower than that.
APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: Sometime this month
SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Watch HD video from the pc on my Samsung 32"
PARTS NOT REQUIRED: Keyboard, mouse, OS, monitor, speakers
PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: newegg.com
PARTS PREFERENCES: a small case.. if it is a big price difference in a tower and something smaller then I'll settle for a tower.. but a smaller size would be nice
OVERCLOCKING: no overclocking or sli/crossfire
MONITOR RESOLUTION: my tv is 720p but um i think the actual resolution is something like 1360×768
ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: I wouldnt mind a quite pc... my xbox and ps3 make enough noise as it is lol.
That RAM is sold out, and most likely won't be back at that price. Expect to drop $30 more for similiar DDR3 1333 sticks. There's no performance gain for 1600 RAM over 1333, so you might as well save some cash.
