High-End HTPC Configuration
Last Update: Dezember 2011 This configuration is intended for off-road use of the equipment. The mounted components do not seem to enter into the philosophy of low-power HTPC, but there are people who are not satisfied with having a HTPC to watch movies only, They want to play, edit video, photos and this is where you can put this type of components. We offer two configurations, one AMD and other Intel. Processor In AMD we choose the Phenom II 1100T X6 3.3Ghz with 6 six-core, a dark beast for video editing.

Slim HTPC Configuration

Slim HTPC Configuration
Last Update: November 2011 Here is our slim HTPC configuration, in a standalone player format. We will use an Antec Fusion HTPC case, a keyboard kit and a media center remote control, with the AMD Fusion architecture, which is the most interesting alternative to the Intel Sandy Bridge to build up a home theater PC.

Last Update: October 2011 After our first budget HTPC setup yesterday, we offer our suggestions for the nettop kind, a mini PC dedicated to home theater use. The nice prices for Sandy Bridge platform components prompted us to propose a Gigabyte Mini-ITX motherboard with an Intel H67 and a low power Pentium G620T. Remember that the Pentium G620T, in addition to consuming only 35W at full load, fully supports the most demanding HD video streams decoding and HD audio bitstream. However, compared to Core i3, i5 and i7, you lose the Intel QSV transcoding video function. A small evil for a complete mini PC that costs around $450. Last, important for the purists, it may be necessary to use a trick...

Budget HTPC Configuration
Last Update: October 2011 Here we are looking for a low-cost HTPC config for which we came to an overall average price of  $450, with remote control and keyboard/mouse. We selected the MS-Tech MC-1200 case. It is an HTPC slim desktop case that comes with a 350W power supply and a Media Center remote. It is fairly well done thanks to a brushed aluminum front panel that fits the spirit of A/V equipment...
