My System Specs

Default

I agree with jdrom on the athlon II, unless you are gaming or overclocking the extra 50-30$ for the phenom 550 is just wasted. Will run cooler too. The Modxstream is also the only modular PSU I can think of with low volts. 8 sata ports really? Don't forget IDE can add 2 devices. HTPC you definitely want a micro atx board since every htpc case is matx or itx (even smaller). Doesn't make sense to have a big honky tower in a tv shelving unit.
