hi forums just need some and recommendations on this htpc gaming build i will need everything except ram mouse or keyboard yes i do need a os so include it please into your build this machine will be mostly to do some gaming like portal 2 l4d2 walking dead and maybe borderlands 2 my tv is 1080p but even if i have to go to 720p thats fine and budget is a issue i cant go over 500ish bucks
Intel Pentium G860 Sandy Bridge 3.0GHz 75
HIS H785F1G2M Radeon HD 7850 1GB 256-bit 165
CORSAIR Builder Series CX500 V2 500W 35.00
any dvd player plus Seagate Barracuda 500gb hdd 65.00
What mobo can be used for trinity I'm confused I Luke your first build better but you forget about power supply and I don't need the ram have some spare ram lying around also shouldi give up on a htpc case and just get a mid tower
EDIT: You could also go the mini-ITX way. You want a socket FM2 board for Trinity.
Best answer thanks only thing I'm editing about your build is that I'm splurging on the gpu the gtx 660 is 195 after Mir building a apu I thought may be cheaper but I don't know if a AMD a10 5800k is going to be good enough for 1080p on gaes Like birderlands 2 and barman
