I've got in mind a gameplan for a new HTPC build, but was hoping for some feedback.
Because of its price and reviews, I believe I've settled on an AMD Athlon II X4 630 Propus processor (AM3 socket, Quad-core). If any objections, speak now or forever hold your peace. My dilema is what motherboard to pair it with. I do like the Gigabyte GA-MA785GMT-UD2H, but that appears to be discontinued. To save a few dollars, I like the idea of a good onboard video option with HDMI, which this one had. I will be doing no gaming, but only media playback and streaming and internet access.
Any MB recommendations out there that may be similar to the specs of the Gigabyte I mention above? I'd love to be able to keep it around $100, give or take just a little. Thanks in advance.
