This claim seems to be a bit damaged by this eccentricity:
Is this article sponsored in some way by Amazon.com? Why not just use the price finding feature in pcpartpicker.com and really open it up to the way users shop for computer parts when they're trying to squeeze every bit of performance out of each dollar spent?
Can you explain me who and why pick that build?
I am really disappointed with what you did...
Perhaps you ought to read Damric's notes when he first posted that build list.
Techy also left a note in the Steam Box voting thread.
The only thing I think it's lacking is a BD-R drive so it can act as a full-fledged HTPC that can also stream games from your more powerful desktop. It's an intriguing idea to do it this way rather than trying to pack massive performance ( and heat ) into something the size of a cable box when you already have one gaming machine in the house.
I can't say enough about my Enthoo Primo, and their less expensive cases offer some of the best value out there at the moment.
