This build is the current value winner IMHO.
- eskro - 2011-07-19 05:04
I agree with you!
Definitely a value winner at $239!!
it's pretty much the same price as a barebone ZOTAC ZBOX HD-ND22
but the G620 CPU completely pawns it!!
thia HTPC is dynamite in a small package

I just built a very similar machine, the board is very nice for the money.
however I used
[GPU] Gainward NVIDIA GT 520 SilentFX Graphics Card - 1GB 39.02 ukp
For the graphics.
And for a little bit more I used this cpu which has lower TDP 35w as opposed to 65w.
[CPU] Intel CPU Pentium G620T Socket 1155 Dual Core Processor 58.35 ukp
Also treated myself to a nice case so the GPU would fit
[CASE & PSU] Silverstone SG05 Mini-ITX Case - Black w/ 300W Power Supply 74.99 ukp
Also you forgot the memory, I just went to crucial.com for it, 2 gig came to about 20 ukp
A tiny little bit more but more future proof imo
Also installed my old ssd - the thing flies a restart takes 26 seconds.
Incidently, you're approving these builds and they don't work OOTB with latest dharma live-cd , they need a fair bit of fiddling to work (does work with openelec tho )

i did not forgot the memory...
like i said in my HTPC Guide
all the builds are 'BarBone',
Meaning, RAM and Hard Drives aren't included...
Those are left-out purposely so you can choose them yourself
according to your needs/budget!

+ 1000.I Absolutely agree with that, wins hands down in every aspect all ION and Zacate builds, except Power Consumption.
One problem though with Asus P8H61-1 Mobo = No Optical Spdif for those with Old AV Receiver. My Choice for Mobo would be Asrock H67M-ITX [url=http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157238][/url].

would it be possible to pair up this build with this case?
Antec ISK310-150 -Mini-ITX Desktop with Silver Front panel, 150-watt power supply
or 150W won't cut it?
from what i can tell the G620 draws about 35W
and the GT210 about an additional 30W
- dajackal - 2011-07-22 08:55
additionally what's the advantage of GT210 vs say the IGP HD2000 in a i3-2000?
I couldn't find any benchmarks comparing the two.
Would it be realistic to expect some gaming on the GT210?
