My System Specs

Default

I'll throw in my 2 cents here as I just recently rebuilt my htpc. I think that the Celeron is a bit underpowered myself. It might be fine with the 430 but I would still say better to go with something with a bit more power. I personally went with an Intel 840 sandy bridge and a Gigabytes h77 moon and it has no problems with anything I throw at it..........but I also have a gt440 as my video card which is overkill for an htpc(it was just a spare I had hanging around).

I would go with a beefier proc, just to be on the safe side.
