My System Specs


good move on the cool and quiet Arinoth, AMD never executed that feature as nicely as Intel has.

If an Atom CPU can handle 1080p playback, your 8xxx series Phenom sure as hell should!!!!!

My primary HTPC is an old 2x Athlon BTW, works like a champ on high def.
Phenom II 945 :: ASUS M4A78-E (780G) :: BFG 285GTX :: 4GB Mushkin DDR2 (5-4-4-12) :: Creative Xi-Fi :: Seagate 500 gig 7200.12 (better than WD BLACK!!!!!) :: Samsung 2493HM

Or actually pay money and use Cyberlink's PowerDVD. I switched and haven't looked back.

Seeing as its an htpc/server i was always planning on running xbmc on it as its just used to watch movies/tv shows and use usenet. Other then that there is no use, seeing as i can do bolth things in xbmc there is no need for any other software or playback programs.
