HTPC New or can i salvage some parts from old pc?
Here's what I have:
Lian Li PCV-600 Case
ASUS M2N32-SLI Deluxe MOtherboard
AMD Athalon 64x2 Dual Core Processor 5200+
TAGAN TG-580-U15 Switching PSU
NVIDIA GeFORCE 7300LE Graphics Card (no HDMI)
a std CD/DVD RW Drive
Seagate Barracuda 500GB 7200rpm SATA Drive
Seagate Barracuda 320GB 7200rpm SATA Drive (OS Drive)
External 1TB USB 2.0 Drive
Would like a smaller footprint HTPC to go into my entertainment unit...if building new I was thinking of something like:
AMD A10-5800K APU Quad Core Processor Socket FM2 3.8GHZ
ASUS F2A85-M/CSM mATX FM2 85X FCH DDR3 2PCI-E16 1PCI-E1 1PCI SATA3 DVI HDMI USB3.0 Motherboard
CD/DVD RW Drive
either an SSD Drive or SATA Drive for OS (Win7)
a Wireless Keyboard/Mouse for HTPC (I have a Logitech Harmony One I can hopefully use for remote?)
If building new I would like to keep under $500...preferrably in the $300-400 range.
Suggestions would be appreciated...
