My System Specs

Default HTPC system

Hey guys, I'm concidering to build a new HTPC around my DP45SG + my G.skill DDR3, I don't really know what part I want to get but cross-fire would be a cool way. I also can get a Antec TRIO 430 for cheap ( old PSU of my sister boyfriend ). What would you suggest me to go with for cheap but good. I know that I can find the part by myself but there is always good idea here so now it`s your turn guys:P
The case would also be a Silverstone lascala 17 or any other that I can fit a ATX PSU and normal piece inside ( any full ATX board for fitting my DP45SG )

Ask if more info needed
Ask for more

Using cross-fire in an HTPC would seem like a rather large waste not to mention i dont think that PSU would be apply to supply enough power, so to avoid head aches or prolbmes i'd say to ignore that part of your idea
