After many PC & HTPC builds all using MSI motherboards (except one, An ASROCK Mobo) and MSI graphic cards completed over the last 6-7 years I decided to plan & start building my new (MONSTER) HTPC mid to late last year, I was set on using the MSI 990FXA-GD80 motherboard and slowly started collecting the parts, I am now currently waiting on the motherboard to arrive in the mail & a Corsair Force 60GB SATA 3 SSD to arrive at a local PC shop then I can put it all together & fire it up, I have put together a list & added up the cost so far>

(ALL PRICES INCLUDE DELIVERY)

Mobo MSI 990FXA-GD-80 $190

CPU BULLDOZER FX-6100 $136

CPU COOLER SILVERSTONE NT06-E $30

RAM CORSAIR VENGEANCE 2x4GB $50

VGA MSI N550GTX-Ti-M2D1GD5/OC $165

SSD CORSAIR FORCE SATA 3 60GB

HDD SEAGATE SATA 3 2TB STORAGE $143

PSU CORSAIR HX-650W $170

CASE SILVERSTONE LC13B-E $149

WHOOOAAAAA! = $1183 so far, Plus fans & odds & ends

Not too bad considering people spend more on HTPC cases than my whole system cost, All this would be worth heaps more retail, Or even worse, A complete assembled system like this would have to be worth up around $2000

From looking around trying to find out info on the new Click BIOS 2 I came across some news that makes me very happy about my new (world record holding) HTPC build (I wont really need to overclock it much but its nice to know what it is capable of)>

Nice. Ive just done a similar build but with a bit less of everything other than the case. I used an AMD A6 and it works just fine and is nice and cool as well.

Received the motherboard today & had it assembled & up & running in no time, Installed Win7 64 bit Ultimate & all the necessary drivers & software with no troubles, Updated the BIOS from V11.5 to V11.8 too

Watched a movie to test out the Audio which is noticeably better than my previous setup

With no errors or troubles at all I would say this is a proven & very powerful system
It runs cool & silent compared to my old setup
