Re: Making a list for my first HTPC build
Good ideas on the CPU and the memory. That will save me a little bit. I honestly wasn't sure about the memory thats why I chose Crucial. As for the case I'm looking for one thats going to blend in with my other home theatre components.
One other thing, I was planning to forgo the video card and use the onboard graphics card, will I be able to do that and stream HD?
