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.

Thanks a bunch guys, I appreciate it!

Yes it would but the
Flex ATX 150W does not inspire confidence in me as there is no concrete data about its build quality, capacitors used, yada yada

Alternatively if u like shoebox casings - they fit standard ATX PSUs (on top of better cooling options) which will serve u well with a quality one selected :p

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.
