So over the weekend to cut the stress, I built a new HTPC. It’s fairly small, much smaller than a normal PC. But this one doesn’t skimp on power, here’s what’s inside:
CPU: Intel Core Duo E7500 2.93GHz
Mem: 2GB Crucial Ballistix 800 DDR2
Mobo: Zotac GF9300-G-E
HDD: Samsung 1TB 7200RPM
DVD: Lite-On BD-ROM
IR: Antec Veris Basic
RMT: Logitech Harmony 550
PSU: 250W Allied
OS: Ubuntu 10.04LTS
WKB: Addesso Wireless Keyboard w/ touch pad Mouse
Features: WiFi (b/g), PCI-e (x16) slot, 8 USB ports, 1-eSATA port, Belkin Wireless N router, Altec Lansing 2.1 sound system, can play content in 1080p resolution, and much more. I’m also selling it for $700.
Now for some pictures.
