Finally got round to testing this today!

I'm running a 2500K @ stock (3.3 GHz) and a GTX 760.

In Windows it's around 100W, while gaming up to 250W. I've known for a while that my PSU is over...

IIRC you need to use the shared basket feature, as opposed to the saved basket. The latter requires you to be logged in.

If you want something simple, have a look at OpenElec for a linux plus XBMC (Kodi) all-in-one. Worked great on the Raspberry Pi.

I swapped out a 5.1 Cambridge Audio / Onkyo combo for a 2.0 DAC + Amp with some weighty but ageing Tannoy speakers and tbh I think the latter was better.

I was really wound up in all of the decisions from ME1 and 2, but I don't recall them making significant differences in ME3.

Kit dies, that's the way it is. When do you draw the line?

If I buy something as used, I don't expect any warranty. If I wanted one, I'd buy new. That's the risk you take.
