My System Specs


You can go with an Intel Core i3 just fine, I would say with a Haswell i3, it is not a power hog at max 54W. You can also go with an IB i3. The HD4600 and even 2500/4000 are fine for HD content play. I am not a big fan of remotes, we are using wireless KB and mouse. VLC streams fine over the Ethernet connection. The newegg reviews for the Haswell Pentium G3220 states that even that one can play HD movies in 1080P with Dolby Digital and DTS.
