Hi all, I've decided to build myself an HTPC, and have been researching for the past couple of days. This build most likely won't happen until early February. Primary use will be DVR (cable), Many movies streamed over my network, and Netflix. No games at all will be played on this machine. This will be an all new build, so sadly, I can reuse nothing. Budget is $1000, but less is always welcome. Case ($129.99) - Silverstone Grandia Series GD06B ATX Media Center / HTPC Case http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811163179 Open to suggestions here. $130 is more than I wanted to spend on a case, but I've come to love a well built quality case. Also the 3 silent 120mm fans are appealing. Tuner ($189.99) - Ceton InfiniTV 4 Quad-tuner Card for Watching Digital Cable TV http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16815706001 This is the reason I decided to build this machine in the first place. OTA broadcasts out here in the boondocks aren't all that great, so I want to keep my cable. I'm open to suggestions, but If I can't use this machine as a cable DVR, then I will most likely scrap the whole build. Motherboard ($74.99) - GIGABYTE GA-B75M-D3H LGA 1155 Intel B75 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813128555 Edited to include a board with HDMI. Thanks Binky. Memory ($49.99) - Kingston HyperX XMP http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820104389 Tried to avoid any potential issues with large heatsinks, but ram is ram in this build. HDD ($69.99) - SAMSUNG Spinpoint F3 ST1000DL004 / HD105SI 1TB 5400 RPM 32KB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822152379 SSD ($) - SAMSUNG 830 Series MZ-7PC064D/AM 2.5" 64GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820147133 *Not included in final price. Newegg is out of stock on these, but I assume I can find one somewhere. CPU ($69.99) - Intel Pentium G620 Sandy Bridge 2.6GHz http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819116399 Lower cost solution with no performance hit. Thanks Charlie! PSU ($59.99) - SeaSonic S12II 380B 380W ATX12V http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817151072 Never used a SeaSonic PSU before, but this one comes highly recommended by Assassin. Optical ($68.99) - LITE-ON 12X BD-ROM http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16827106380 Just your basic Blu-Ray drive. Not interested in burning Blu-Ray on this machine. OS ($99.99) - Windows 7 Home Premium Remote ($49.99) - VisionTek Candyboard Keyboard with Touchpad and Built in IR Remote http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16823852004 Seemed a low cost solution for KB, Mouse, AND remote, plus it comes with an IR sensor. Don't really want a keyboard and mouse passed around my living room. Total Cost - $863.90 I realize that some of these are sale prices and may not be on sale in a few weeks when I make these purchases. I have taken that into account and am prepared for the increase if necessary. Thanks in advance guys. You all are always a big help.
