New HTPC build FM2 based.
My blu-ray player died so I started spec'ing out a new FM2 based HTPC and was surprised how much it ends up costing, so far it's $405 without taxes/shipping or a HDD/SDD.
What do you think of this build?
I could get a smart blu-ray player now for around $119 but I hear they aren't so reliable are there any other solutions out there?
Case: SilverStone ML03B
Motherboard: ASUS F2A55-M FM2 AMD
CPU: AMD A4-5300 Trinity 3.4GHz
Power Supply: SILVERSTONE SST-ST40F-ES 400W
Memory: Kingston 8GB 1600 1.5V
Blu-ray Player: ASUS Blu-Ray Player
Logitech Keyboard: Wireless Keyboard/pad
I don't think that's the memory you want. Trinity works best with dual channel setups.
I'd recommend this one: Newegg.ca - Kingston HyperX Blu 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model KHX1600C9D3B1K2/8GX
Or this one: Newegg.ca - CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9B
Even better, go with 1866 memory:
Newegg.ca - G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) Desktop Memory Model F3-14900CL9D-8GBXL
APUs use RAM as VRAM, so the faster the better, generally. It doesn't make much difference, but it probably does make $10 worth...
