Sorry for another build advice thread, just wanted some experienced views on my draft build. It will be used for playback of all media, 1080p mkv included, as well as BD-drive playback (eventually). I won't be playing games on it - for now anyway. I have a 5.1 amp which I'd like to use, I'm assuming I can just use an optical cable from the mobo to my amp and get 5.1? Or will I need a XONAR sound card or similar? This is what I have selected... Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-MA785GM-US2H 785G Socket AM2+ OR Gigabyte GA-MA785GMT-UD2H 785G Socket AM3 CPU: AMD Athlon II X2 235e 2.7GHz Socket AM3 Cooler: Zalman CNPS8000 Memory: No idea, was looking for the cheapest option, 2GB is fine unless someone knows a 4GB kit for under £60-ish? Kingston 1GB DDR3 1333MHz HDD: Space is not an issue as I have 4TB of RAID5 upstairs, 500GB will do fine for the occasional PVR use. Western Digital WD5000AAKS 500GB Optical Drive: Can't find the LG BD/HD-DVD combo drive in stock anymore Think I will wait until BD-ROM drive prices drop a bit more, so I'll re-use an old DVD-ROM for now. PSU: Have a spare lying around that I'll re-use. Case: Already have the Antec Fusion I'd appreciate people's opinions on which motherboard to go for, and if the CPU is good enough for decoding 1080p video. I also have no idea about tuner cards, I'd like a dual card ideally so I can watch & record different shows at the same time, and it has to support freeview. Is the WinTV-HVR-2200 overkill or would something like the WinTV-NOVA-TD 500 be OK?
