We have an HD video camera and I'm looking to build a computer that I can play and store the HD movies on. But I'm wanting to display the video on my HD tv and not really the computer monitor.
I've been doing a little research and have decided on the following components to the best of my knowledge. What I was hoping was for confirmation from you in the know as to whether or not this will give me the results I'm looking for? I won't be gaming at all but I all I want is to be able to play the movies at a quality HD level.
That is a nice tower heatsink, but keep in mind that with an AMD setup it will have to be mounted so that it points towards the top of the case. You'll see a lot of people complaining about this configuration because it usually means the heatsink will sit over the RAM slots.
Are you planning to overclock? A big aftermarket heatsink is really only needed if you plan to overclock. Your processor will come with a stock fan that should do the job at stock speeds.
