I looking to build a HTPC with gaming abilities. I can spend around 600 bucks. I need core components, case and PSU. Any help would be appreciated.

I prefer the Athlon II X4 630 but I am not stuck on it.

  1. Have you search for similar threads here?
    for example?

    Try at least to figure out some knowledge instead of just asking with complete blank head.
  2. Hmm do u mean a HTPC that can be a sort of 'nest' in case you want to game or actual gaming now?
  3. Look, I do have some knowledge.

    I have a gaming PC that I built myself two months ago. I was merely looking for recommendations on a HTPC since Ive never built one before. What works well for this purpose, has a small form factor, and still allows a bit of gaming? I only want the gaming capability because I want to have my mates over to game some times. However, its not important that it has a cutting edge graphics card. An ATI 5770 or 5830 suffices most likely. I also needed a bit of help getting it within budget constraints, something like 400 gbp.

    I prefer the Athlon II X4 630 because its cheap and has quad cores. Also Toms Hardware recommends it for budget video encoding, which I may do.
