Best Budget HTPC Questions Tags: New Build Systems Last response: April 11, 2010 5:11 PM in Systems Share maxwbrad April 11, 2010 3:58:10 PM Am building a budget HTPC for basically web surfing and DVD/Blu Ray playback and had two questions: Which AMD cpu at the price point of $60-90 would be best? The ASUS mobo I am using has on board Radeon 4200 with sideport, would you suggest a graphics card or just the on board be fine? Thanks.
