Need advice on cheap motherboard and CPU for HTPC Tags: New Build PCS Motherboards Systems Last response: February 11, 2013 2:45 PM in Systems Share 2DIE February 11, 2013 12:30:50 PM have 2 old PCs and a lot of spare parts from a recent build. I was about to throw out the old PCs due to lack of room and my brother asked how much would it cost to make a HTPC for him. How much could I make a cheap HTPC for? Hoping for as cheap as possible. Things I would need: Mother Board: CPU: Not sure if he will need a video card for just watching movies on VLC? All the rest I could salvage from the old computers, it would need to be a ATX or mATX board. Preference for AMD but not a necessity.

No video card needed. It will do everything you need for HTPC use. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
