Help with a HTPC/Gaming rig Tags: New Build Gaming Systems Last response: December 17, 2012 3:34 PM in Systems Share dan2222 December 17, 2012 3:12:18 PM Can anyone offer any advice for a new build that will be mainly for HTPC purposes but with a 560ti for some gaming. The build must be low on power. I am considering these two processors, AMD (Trinity) A4-5300 Dual-Core Socket FM2 Accelerated Processor Intel Core i3-3220 3.30GHz (will the extra cores be worth the money) I am getting a Bitfenix survivor case, and I have a 1tb Samsung f1 HDD I would appreciate cpu and mobo suggestions and any tv card ideas!

Are you building for live tv, if so, what signal sources (digital cable, over the air, cable card) What type of network will the PC be on? dan2222 December 17, 2012 3:34:34 PM I have limited knowledge of HTPC stuff. I have only built one gaming rig before. The rig will be for live tv with a free to air tv tuner card, lovefilm and sky go! What are extenders, (sorry for lack of knowledge) Can't find your answer ?
