Planning to get my third PC (thinking of building myself for first time) for following purposes:
1> HTPC (HDMI to Panasonic 42E5D)
2> Media Server(using Media Monkey) to same TV through cross cable.1080i/p files(no real time conversion)
3> 12X7 download rig (JDownloader + Bittorent)
5> All browser.
6> Games (extrem low end)
7> Win 7.
I want my system should be future-proof for 3 years (if not 5). Should perform above tasks with same speed till then. No micro-ITX board and addon GPU. Silent system is also my preference.
That AMD APU is a very low end CPU and the onboard video is not that great. The 2500K is a good CPU but it doesn't make sense to pair it with a Z77 motherboard - you will need a Z68 or P67 motherboard instead. The green hard drive will be incredibly slow.
What is your budget? Knowing that will help to suggest an HTPC.
