Hello all,

I am trying to build a mini ITX computer for the folks. They don't want anything too big since it's going to be connected to the led tv and there is not too much room on the tv stand. However, I am thinking that this build can be cheap since all they do is watch downloaded videos, dvds/blurays and streaming videos online. They also do the occasional web surfing, which obviously doesn't take up too much. I was wondering if this build be sufficient enough to do all these simple tasks

I don't know if I am going too cheap with this build, but I thought what they would be doing wouldn't require all that much power.

Also, I was wondering if building a mini itx computer was any more difficult than a normal build. I can't see it being more difficult except the small working space, but I guess it never hurts to ask. Please let me know what you guys think of this build and if it is reasonable. I am also trying to keep it cheap, so if you have any suggestions for different components, please let me know about the more reasonably priced parts.

Thanks a lot guys and Happy Holidays! :wahoo: 

P.S. I didn't include an hdd because I have one already that I can install

If I were to go with the A6, would you suggest going with the triple core or the quad core? Thanks again

The triple core, it's 65W instead of 100W. 100W might get too hot in a mini ITX build.
