I am looking at building my first HTPC. (efficient and low consumption)
I must admit; I am not really knowledgeable on all the pieces needed and how they all fit. I have been reading tons of information online.
I am looking for a HTPC that would stream HD (720p and 1080p) content that is downloaded. The HTPC would be running a bit torrent client in either Windows or Linux. (If possible this would also replace my file - media server)
hi, i'm planning a simular config as well
but i'm worried about some pci-e issues i've been reading at the newegg.com
reviews page for the ASUS AT5IONT-I
i do have a planned config using the asus model (mobo looks alot more interesting than the zotac one does)
btw, last and first name brand pc i ever got in my life was a c128, every other pc i ever had was something i built...first pc i built was made from salvaged parts at flea markets, cpu came from a translator...i breadboarded it first then made my first mobo with parts from radio shack and other supply stores
