Hi everybody,

recently my dad (who knows nothing about computers) wants an HTPC for youtube to listen to music. so i was thinking how would i go about doing this in the most efficient way possible. i know i messed up on my latest build big time, screwing up the itx in october, then having to change it to a micro atx, only to get the wrong motherboard. This is the current build:

AMD Phenom II x4 955 Black Edition 3.2ghz
Gigabyte 880GM-D2H AM3 880G MicroATX
Kingston Hyper X 8GB Dual Channel DDR3-1600
HIS IceQ X Turbo ATI Radeon HD 6850
DIAMOND XtremeSound 5.1/16 bit Sound Card
OCZ ZS Series 650W 80 Plus Bronze PSU
IN WIN BR665 Mini Tower
MSI 24X DVD Burner Black SATA Model DH-24AS
Seagate Barracuda ST500M002 500GB 7200 RPM 3.5" HDD

so what i was planning to do was to split up some parts and create 2 computers with others (old and new), like so:

AMD Phenom II x4 955 Black Edition 3.2ghz
MSI 890GXM-GD65 AM3 890GX Micro ATX
Patriot Viper 3 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3 DDR3 2133
HIS IceQ X Turbo ATI Radeon HD 6850
OCZ ZS Series 650W 80 Plus Bronze PSU
IN WIN BR665 Mini Tower
MSI 24X DVD Burner Black SATA Model DH-24AS
Seagate Barracuda ST500M002 500GB 7200 RPM 3.5" HDD

AMD Athlon II X4 640 3.0GHz
Gigabyte 880GM-D2H AM3 880G MicroATX
Kingston Hyper X 8GB Dual Channel DDR3-1600
XFX Radeon HD 5670 Single Slot (bought with my first build, it was cheap and i didnt know anything about computer components in 2008)
DIAMOND XtremeSound 5.1/16 bit Sound Card (bought for my Compaq Evo 07e8h Pentium 4 computer)
Canada Computers 450w Green PSU (got it with a case; $35 together)
Antec DF-35 (Dark Fleet) Midtower (bought the wrong case around new years, i wanted the p185 i think?)
24X DVD Burner Black IDE
Seagate Momentus XT 720GB 2.5" Hybrid Drive

i was just wanting to know if there was anythng that wouldnt work or could be better before i start.

Thank you for your inputs
