Win -  Build Check! my first HTPC! :)
Hello Guys,
Im gonna build my first media pc to run xbmc, though some info will be stored locally im also going to stream SD from other pc's in the house.
[£50.46][MotherBoard] A75M ASRock
[£56.26][Processor] AMD Llano A6 A3500 2.1GHz Socket FM1 3MB L2 Cache Retail Boxed Processor
[£55.62][HDD] Western Digital WD3200BEKT 320GB 2.5" Hard Drive SATAII 7200rpm 16MB Cache - OEM Scorpio Black
[£64.99Antec 300 ISK 150
[£20.58][Ram] Corsair 4GB (2x2GB) DDR3 1600MHz XMS3 Memory Kit - CL9 1.5V
[Total : 247.91] (before delivery)
Could somebody with experience in building these check my build and see if i could save any £ the main purpose is to stream over the network and play via hdmi to tv and to be as cost effective as possible. i recently lost my job so money is a problem Sad.
Thank you very much in advance,
your all set. good job. u made your homework!

i would swap the 320GB HDD for a 64GB CRUCIAL SSD
One thing I spotted is that's the micro ATX board yet your case is mini ITX.
good catch Andori,
i thought the op would at least get the correct mobo form factor..
ah yes, good spot thanks, its due to the model only missing the -itx!. this is the mobo i meant!
Nice... about to do the same build but with the 65W version of that case.... A6-3500..... from what I understand you don't need the 150w case... and the 65w case will be more silent.

Check out this post....
