My System Specs


Given you have no intensive uses for the computer I would go for a graphics card and call it a day. Obviously if you want to build a new system this is a good time, but I don't think it's needed. I voted new lower end, but really a used 7750/7770 would be great. From what I have read amd tend to do better for colors etc for htpc.

Edit : Or if it's likely only going to be a htpc, then an amd a8 or a10 65watt APU for a new build is what I would do.
Desktop: Arc Midi R2, Z77-D3H, 3770@4.1ghz with Zalman Optima Cooler, 4x4gb ram, EVGA GTX 1070 Ti SC, Bitfenix Fury 750w, WD Black 1TB, MX500 500gb
Away from home: Lenovo Legion Y530, 16gb, i7 8750H, GTX1050Ti
