My System Specs

Smile HTPC under 400,- build

What will it be used for?
Solely streaming HD movies, blu-rays. Browsing on the internet, playing videos. No gaming.

What is my budget?

What country will I buy my parts from?
The Netherlands

Brand preference?

Are you using any spare parts?
Yes, I am using my LG BH10LS30 Blu-ray/DVD intern rewriter, since it has no use at all in my desktop PC. Also using an external HDD, so I don't need an internal HDD for storage in it.

What have I come up with so far?

Subtotaal ex BTW 280,16


Totaalbedrag ex BTW 280,16
BTW (21%) 58,83


Totaalbedrag inc BTW 338,99

EDIT: Going for a A6 5400K and DDR3-1866 4GB RAM now.


I don't know yet, we have a media player, but it's not working that well.

1920x1080 42" television. I don't know the refresh rate. Also connecting it to a DENON AVR receiver.

Specific technologies?
USB 3.0, SATA III, SSD for booting, HDMI.

Please criticise my build as much as possible. I am planning to put in a 1866 MHz RAM, because I read it works better with an APU. And will the A4-5300 run everything I want to run (no gaming) flawless, without any lag or so? Will I also need a Scythe Big Shuriken 2 Rev B, or will the stock cooler suffice?
