Default Re: htpc - blue ray

I recommend the 780G motherboards

- Gigabyte 780G mobo http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813128090
- AMD X2 cpu like the 5000 (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103211)
- Scythe Ninja Mini HSF http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835185046
- 4GB memory (2GB is fine though) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231122
- Antec NSK2480 case http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811129034
- Hauppage MCE-PVR150 tuner card http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16815116620

Note that lower power AMD CPUs are better. They have a special line of lower wattage (hand-picked) CPUs. They were just out of stock when I ordered.
