  1. 1) Good build with room for the second GTX460 down the road.
    2) The one above!
    3) I3 2100 H67 motherboard GTS450/HD5770 (even GT240 or HD5570/5670 would do) or similar, case and PSU
  2. +1 to rolli's HTPC build. But, I must ask. Is that gtx 460 A TRUE gtx 460, or is it a gtx 460 SE? It sounds trivial, but it matters.
  3. Best answer
    First build looks good, although Im not a fan of Samsung drives. Have received way too many bricks from them for my taste. Might consider a WD blue or green instead.
  4. rolli59- Thank you. I like the sandy brigde HTPC :) and the case is good to. I got a athlon 2 x4 with a 5770 in a actec 300 myself. LOL and for the first build if i can get the deals i got it would be sweet.

    striker410 - its a true 460 1 gb not the SE. I know its hard to believe with that price i got it at. Got it on Boxing day. It was the last one there
