Hi guys, I want to build a very small HTPC. Here are the specs I was thinking of and I wanted to know your expert opinions on it. The only thing I am unsure is if the power supply is powerful enough to sustain this machine.
1- Antec ISK-310 150W
2-CPU A8-3850 Llano
3- AsRock ITX mobo (still not out yet...you guys know when they will be released?)
4- 8GB G.Skill 1600MHz DDR3 (2x4GB)
5- HDD Scorpio black 2.5"500GB
6- Slim blu ray player
Your build and explanation is pretty good.
I won't need a remote since I plan to interact with my HTPC using my smartphone and remote desktop
Also, the onboard video is more than enough since i'll only be watching movies and browsing the web, maybe play old games through emulators
I will hook it to my logitech Z5500 and hopefully get DTS audio out of it with mkv files I have. I gotta find a mobo that can handle all that. Asus and ASRock are known for good mobos. Just waiting for their FM1 ITX boards now.
