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 Tongue

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 Tongue)

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

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?

Easy answer. GT 210 = Perfect 24p (23,976) Playback. Intel IGP = Buggy 24p and only (Cannot produce 23,976) playback and loses a frame in every 40".

150W PSU is enough for a mini-ITX + G620 + GT430

Eskro,

You have no idea how useful your threads are, or maybe you do, either way, I wish google would pick them up so that more people can find them.

I'm looking at doing this build, and wanted to double check before I click the checkout button that this will work for: 1080p 2d video, and bitstream HD Audio output. Looking for everything output into my receiver via HDMI, I'm assuming the GeForce can handle that?

any modifications suggestions also welcome Smile

  • ASUS P8H61-I (REV 3.0) LGA 1155 Intel H61 HDMI USB 3.0 Mini ITX Intel Motherboard

  • ASUS ENGT430/DI/1GD3(LP) GeForce GT 430 (Fermi) 1GB 128-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Low Profile Ready Video Card

I have exactly the same setup in an Antec ISK 300-150 case, except the Ripjaws (i bought the Corsair XMS3).
