Ok I am stumped on a couple of things. For starters, I will mention that I want this thing to be VERY POWER EFFICIENT. Lowest power is a lot better, because it will be on or on standby for most of the time. Now, it will be connected to my Acer 32" LCD HDTV (1080i/720p) TV via (hopefully) DVI-D. I basically want help on: Motherboard/CPU PSU Graphics Tv Tuner card Wireless card Here are proposed specs: Mobo: Gigabyte GA-G33-DS2R Motherboard CPU: e2220 CPU RAM: 2GB PC6400 generic GFX: Onboard OR hd3450/8400GS Hard drive: easily sorted out DVD Drive: DVD burner for now, blu ray later when prices fall Case: Icute Ibox Power supply: ? (thinking generic 400W) Tv tuner card: no idea Wireless card: no idea So what I basically need help with: AMD or Intel? I actually have the Gigabyte motherboard here, but am willing to sell it and buy a 780G or trade on these forums. The main reason for that is that I would be able to get the onboard IGP which is fairly decent plus (dont quote me) but I think AMD uses less power? Also with that: The G33 has onboard VGA and HDMI. My TV doesnt have HDMI but has DVI-D (which is the video part of the HDMI). Should I just get a DVI - HDMI adapter for the TV and plug the sound in normally via RCA/headphones? Power supply: any suggestions? Want to keep it cheap but want one that will use min power at all times. Graphics: Im thinking of getting the 3450 or 8400GS with the G33, but if I get the 780G I will stick to the onboard. What do you think? TV Tuner: Ok I need a LOT of help on this one. Again, trying to keep cost in mind, but it NEEDS to have a remote and support 1080i/720p tuner (as the TV I have doesnt have an inbuilt digital tuner). Id like one that has FM as well, but I am not picky. A dual tuner would be cool as well, but again, not necessary. It can be PCI or PCIe 4x compatible as the G33 (not sure about the 780G) has two PCI's and a PCI4x (as well as the primary PCIe16x). Wireless card: A decent wireless-N PCI card to suite my Lynksys WRT330N router. The centrino laptop with a G card gets full reception and no cut outs when in the position the HTPC will be in. Again price is a big factor to consider. If you can be bothered, check with www.staticice.com.au to see if the products are avaliable in Australia. PLEASE do this for any TV tuner recommendation as there are no where near as many here as there are in the states. I think thats about it . If you can answer just 1 thing it would help Thx in adv!
