APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: As soon as possible, but there is really no time frame.
BUDGET RANGE: $800
SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT:
- Streaming audio/video from my NAS.
- Streaming audio/video from the interwebs (like SiriusXM, NPR and such...) .
- Surfing the interwebs.
- Playing DVDs
- Playing CDs
- Playing BluRay? maybe?
PARTS NOT REQUIRED: Keyboard, mouse, monitor, speakers, OS.
PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: not important, but I can always go with newegg.com
PARTS PREFERENCES: I need to have a CD/DVD/Blue-Ray drive in this thing... Also I saw some cases that have an amplifier built-in. I wonder if a case like that makes sense... That way I can get rid of the Tuner I have. Also, how can I avoid having a keyboard and mouse? any remote or touchscreen suggestions (is my budget too low for that)?
SLI OR CROSSFIRE: Huh?
MONITOR RESOLUTION: I have a TV. It is 27". It is not likely to get bigger.
ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: Must be Windows (long story...)
1.You could get by with a quality 300-400 80+ PSU but that came with a DVDRW SATA that is basically free hehe
2. Nah at stock/non OC that stock HSF is fine but if your noise tolerance is low look into after market HSF with stress on low noise perhaps ^^
3. You are welcomed
Once again: many many thanks!!!!! So based on all things considered and then re-considered, here is what I am looking at... Do you think this works? Am I missing anything? Am I wasting $$$ on anything?
