£200 Noob Mini HTPC Build
#22
Well, £200 quid was initially spent but I did have certain components already.
2TB Western Digital External HDD for storage, and a 16GB Sandisk Cruzer - which I installed XBMC Ubuntu and mounted inside with a usb cable to run as primary boot. I also had a spare keyboard too.

So the above £200 will get you a system which will more than happily cope with 1080p providing that you already have storage.

There's no remote though, but I spent £12.99 (Sainsbury's) on a PS3 remote and a bluetooth dongle for a quid from some pound store.

I will cost up the exact amount I've spent so far when I have time, but the initially planned build will cost as stated, though actually today slightly less as the Lian case has dropped in price since they released a few new models.

Oh, and it'll boot from any usb input. A quick stab at the bluetooth keyboard is enough. The same for most recent ASRock motherboards as far as I can tell.
