I need 2 build a beast warrior of an HTPC for poco $$ Tags: Build Windows 7 Systems Last response: July 29, 2010 9:20 AM in Systems Share L1n3arA July 28, 2010 10:41:33 PM Hi all, I am attempting to build the cheapest ever HPTC! So then, my requirements are the following: Blu-Ray Wi Fi 1TB storage space HDMI Optical Card reader (standard CF, SD, MS etc.) Able to run windows 7 home premium 32bit Able to playback @ 1080p Gaming is not necessary I do not need the OS, monitor or peripherals. My ideal solution I think will involve something centered around the ion/atom platform. Mini itx would be the preferable form factor. Thanks for any suggestions.
