I am going to build my first HTPC to replace my cable service. I would like some comments on the components I am looking to use:
What I have selected so far:
Gigabyte H55N-USB3 Motherboard, Silverstone Grandia GD04 Case, Thermaltake Slim X3 CPU Cooler (not sure if this will be a problem with some of the space constraint comments on this board), Intel I5-655 Processor, Seasonic X-400 Power Supply (fanless), G.SKILL ECO Series 4GB DDR3 SDRAM DDR3
Other components I have:
HD Home Run for OTA HD TV, ASUS Xonar D2X Sound card 9to feed my apm)
Items not sure about:
SSD Drive for primary Windows 7 OS, and maybe dual 1TB drives for storage.
