Hello, I'm looking to build a HTPC finally, and put together the following build. Just looking for some thoughts:
Intel Core i3-2100T $135
Intel DH67CFB3 Mini-ITX $130
CORSAIR XMS3 2GB DDR3 1333 $18
OCZ Vertex 2 SSD 60GB $99
Wesena ITX7 Case $99 (<-- SMALL W/ BUILT-IN IR RECEIVER!)
Sony BC-5640H BD-ROM (part of case) $140
IR Receiver & RC260 Remote (part of case) $20
120W 24 pin PSU & AC/DC cord $65
Ality WeeBoard $79
Windows 7 x64 Home Premium $95
Total Home Theater 5 $99
All storage would be linked up to my Windows Home Server running in a VM on my i7 920/6GB RAM, and I have a Logitech Harmony Remote as well so i should be able to train it with the RC260 remote... just using the Ality WeeBoard in case i want to do PC stuff.
Also, I would have a TV Tuner be the HDHomerun PRIME (3-tuner) network-based tuner.
