I am planning on building my first HTPC for our living room. We are looking to cut the cord and cable and expect this built to be able to stream music and video from local server and the internet, DVR for over the air HD and potentially add a Blue-ray DVD at a later point in time.
I have the following components already and would like to utilize if possible:
• Intel Pentium E5200 Wolfdale 2.5GHz LGA 775 65W Dual-Core Desktop Processor
• Hauppauge WinTV-HVR-2250
• Windows 7
I am thinking of using the following to complete the build:
• Intel BOXDG45ID LGA 775 Intel G45 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
• G.SKILL 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory
• Western Digital Caviar Green WD10EARS 1TB 5400 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive
Any concerns with the components here? I also need some suggestions picking out a quiet and efficient case and power supply. I would like to spend between $100-150 for both.
