I want to build an HTPC, running XBMCbuntu exclusively. It will have a massive library (about 9 Tb of video media). I want it to smoothly navigate the large library and playback full 1080 HD without stuttering. It must also be able to rip videos from disc. It will be an AMD build. Note that I don't want an excessive amount of power either. I'm hoping to keep it in a mini-ITX case and want to minimize power consumption and heat. Here are the questions:
1. What processor speed and amount of memory should I shop for if I if I use a video card?
2. What processor speed and amount of memory should I shop for if I use an integrated GPU?
