I plan on building a HTPC gaming rig thats connected to my 56" 1080p tv as well as a 1920x1080 monitor in another room.
Silverstone grandia gd08 (great cooling, plan on having 5 120mm fans for intake, and 2 80mm fans as well as case vents for exhaust)
Gskill ripjaws 4gbx4 ram
asus p8z77 - v mobo
ASUS GTX 660 OC (found a deal for 199)
coolermaster hyper tx3 with replaced noctua 92mm fan (found deal, also for quieter fan)
ocz 120 gb ssd
wd black 1tb hdd
2x wd red 3tb
Antec 620w gaming modular psu
thoughts? my budget is between 1000 and 1500 but i would like to get the most bang for my buck.
i will be doing some video editing, gaming and using it as an htpc of course.
also i have a decently high end 5.1 yamaha/paradigm sound system, is connecting that to my htpc through optical good enough or is there a better option? (i plan on connecting my tv straight to my htpc through hdmi)
