Radio Shak: Building an HTPC: Hardware

So when a friend told me he could build a 1080p-capable HDMI-equipped HTPC for under £200 I became pretty excited. After spending a day researching and negotiating on the spec we both bought the following components each:

£49.10 for an AMD ATHLON 64 X2 4850E 2.5GHZ PIB Processor

£24.98 for an OCZ 2GB Kit (2x1GB) DDR2 800MHz/PC2-6400 CL 5-6-6-15 Value Series Memory

£54.57 for a Gigabyte GA-MA78GM-S2H 780G Socket AM2+ onboard VGA 8 channel audio mATX Motherboard

£35.99 for a Western Digital WD2500AAKS Caviar SE 250GB 7200RPM SATAII/300 16MB Cache – OEM

£59.98 for an Antec NSK2480 MATX Desktop Case Black & Silver – With 380W EarthWatts PSU
