Hey there. My mother wants an HTPC and I intend to build one. I haven't built a machine in ~2 years so I'm a bit out of the loop. I need some suggestions on a cheap cpu. I'd like to keep the entire build in the $300 (or less) range. This HTPC will be connected to her (newish) Toshiba 46" tv (1920x1080, 120hz). This HTPC will mainly be used for web-surfing and streaming video. Gaming is a low priority but I still intend to build this with a video card. Silent operation is also a very low priority. Side note - as far as the keyboard/mouse go, I plan to get her a bluetooth set unless wireless has drastically improved the past few years. My experience with using wireless across a room hasn't been very good (eats up battery and performs poorly). On the other hand, my bluetooth (mx 5000) set has worked great across vast distances. The mouse/keyboard are separate from the HTPC budget I intend to adhere to so price isn't a major concern there. Any suggestions on mouse/keyboards from HTPC users would be welcome. Thanks for any suggestions, it's appreciated.
