    I have thrown together a build for my next pc which would be for HTPC and BF:BC2/BF3. I want to save cash but still rock out. Please tweak my setup to safe cash but still rock out.

    I have included 2 png files of the current cart.

    Probably not the answer you were looking for, but buy used?

    hmm the idea is to save cash, the card you suggested bumped it back up to $564. Why not the 4850?

    Thanks, that dropped a few bucks off the total.

    Don't you have an OS license you can use? That would save you 100 bucks.

    Just a thought can you not just put your current system in to a HTPC case ?. Or are both systems in different room or \ and you think you will be using both at the same time ?.

    Sure be extra electric to run it but does save $540 for now till you can get some extra case for a better v card ?.
