Been looking for deals on HTPC builds on and off and just came across this in my email....'

http://www.tigerdirect.ca/applications/SearchTools/item...

Other than the mobo having a very primitive BIOS, no 1394, and spacing issues, its seems liek it has fairly decent reviews. Power supply is questionable I'm sure, but other than that... I can't put the same system together for less than $450 shipped on any site I use.

I've never built with intel. I'd like to put together an HTPC for Blu-ray (maybe) but mostly just DVD and some nice audio capabilities.

At first glance, this seems like a nice deal.

any quick thoughts?

thats actually about $350. (rebates are never 100% certain)

And I think Newegg can meet or beat those prices.

an AS Rock H55 is $61.99, half the cost of that mobo, just for starters.

Now that was tigerdirect.ca. Are you in Canada?
