    Default HTPC rig

    I m going to buy some PC items very soon. My budget is round 28000 tk.
    Here my choices:


    Proccesor: AMD Athlon X2 250 @3.0 Ghz

    Mobo: MSI G760 chipset

    Ram: Twinmos 2Gb DDR3 1333 bus speed

    HDD: Hitachi 500 Gb

    Monitor: Acer LED 18.5''

    Drive: Any Dvd Rom for now

    Case: Vision (transparent side panel) + Stock power supply


    As for Gpu i'll stick with my 9500 GT and Liteon combo drive. (I will upgrade it latter).

    I m confused for casing. Which one is best around 3000 tk (Transparent side panel)

    I m going to use this as mostly for HTPC and general use. Any suggestions?

    get the 880g series mobo....it will be way better...

    also it has hardware decoder for videos...also has builtin 7.1 LPCM audio card in the GPU......and you will not need the 9500gt....

    Thanks for the reply. The 880G is also a good choice. I checked the price of MSI 880G Mobo currently priced at 7k at UCC, which is 2 k more than the MSI 760G Mobo, but i have limited budget around 27-28k.

    But i may push the budget to 30k if necessary. One thing, Guys how about Athlon x4 640(currently priced at 9k)? Both x4(Quad Core) and x2(Dual Core) has 2 MB L2 Cache but no L3 Cache and clocked at @3 Ghz. If everything remains constant i can go for the quad core at 30k.

    Which one should i go for? I am confused.
