Philbar's build will be great. Just pick whatever case you want. You might want to consider a blu-ray player too since you want ht and youre going to be using an hdtv for your screen

yeah, i think i wanna blu-ray. how do you run hi-def tv to your computer with hdmi? i plan using my home audio reciever instead of the sound.


i appreciate the help!

I think you would use the HDMI converter attached to the GPU. Not the mobo, to connect your tv.

And if you want to connect sound from your Computer (watching a blueray)... your mobo has
an optical and a coaxial S/PDIF Out that you may be able to connect to your home audio system.

these guys know more about it than i do... i was just browsing and thought i'd chime in.

The GTX 260 will come with a DVI to HDMI adapter. Then you can hook it up to your tv or whatever.

Not really, you could always consider one though. Your motherboard has an PDIF optical out so it's not necessary. You could always add one later if you're not satisfied with the onboard audio.

sooo... my ht reciever is providing the power but the onboard audio is doing the sound processing? doesnt matter how good my ht reciever is, if the onboard is mediocre it want sound best without a good sound card?

hmmm... that asus looks pretty nice. i wonder if you can hook rca's up to it. sorry... i'm new to this pc ht stuff

now i need a case... i'd like to have a see-through panel with all the fancy led lights and stuff. i want it to look cool, i guess. any suggestions?

also, isnt a 7500 rpm 1tb hd kinda slow? if i run a 10000 rpm hd i'm sacrificing memory for speed. can i just get a one 7500 rpm tb hd and be happy? i cant stand lag. i want this computer to be fast as ****!
