UPDATE: No rebate necessary now as it's $60.

link [newegg.com]

The included RAM is $40 if you were to purchase it, so (and it gets 5 Eggs with 1,062 reviews so it's not junk), so for an extra $20 you get a MB/CPU combo...

$10 rebate link [newegg.com]

I didn't see this posted (and "yes" I searched).

This is obviously for HTPC (more XBMC / OpenELEC [openelec.tv] I'm not sure about Netflix or HULU), MAME or "grandma" use, but it's a good start for a low-power usage client. The DOA reviews concern me a little, but there are many NewEgg reviewers that shouldn't be doing anything with computers, so I'll take a chance on this.

this is a bit off topic, but some of you guys might know.

bought a a6 3500 cpu, and the fan on that guy loud. can i buy a same size fan to replace the cpu fan?

Not interested in swapping the whole heatsink, just take out the loud cpu fan and replace it with something a little more quiet.

Can i replace it with a case fan with the same size, or does it have to be a cpu fan?

Thanks guys.

Does someone have a good link on the reasons to build an HTPC over let's say a Roku or tricked out PS3 or other media device?

No one can answer that for you. It really depends on what you watch/ use and how you store your media. For ex. If you just use Netflix then a htpc or even a ps3 is a huge waste of power.

Newegg has a bunch of boards that they are throwing in 8 GB of RAM with. Might be better going with another board if you want a better CPU:

i built my first htpc couple of weeks ago, and to be honest - well worth it. i put w8 on it (http://slickdeals.net/f/5386070?v=1), and it will pretty much run anything. Hulu, Netflix, and whatever else you throw at it. Those streaming boxes are limited IMO. Plus that way you will have a spare pc for whatever reason.

used these deals to put together mine:
CPU/MOBO/RAM - http://slickdeals.net/f/5346602?v=1 - pretty slick deal
SSD - kingston 120gb - http://slickdeals.net/f/5371292?v=1 - missed out on the $60 so bought it for $70
case - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Pro...6811154087

The E-350 AMD CPU is much, much faster than the C-50 (and don't get me started on the Atoms). Passmark gives it a rating of around 800, so it should even outperform some older core2duos. Even without GPU acceleration it should be able to decode 720p video using pure cpu power, even the pesky 10-bit 720p anime encodes (just install LAV filters and Media Player Classic Home Cinema for Windows7). The GPU can hardware decode H.264 high profiles (16ref frames, 8bit) up to 1080p. Blu-rays should run flawless on this thing, so should 1080p Youtube.

What else do you do on it besides Netflix and Hulu? My PS3 can run Hulu through PlayOn. And, of course it can run Netflix and Amazon too. Just wondering if there are any really cool things I could do on an HTPC that I couldn't do on my PS3. Thanks.

I don't see what a full HTPC can do that something like an MK808 can't for less.

Use considerably less power doing the same thing. Playstation 3 uses 170–200 watts under normal use. A HTPC can use as little as 15 watts doing the same depending on setup.

For me, biggest value of my HTPC is automatic recording of over the air TV broadcast, and the free TV guide.

I unplugged the fan on my Gigabyte e350 and used a 120mm case fan. You just have to be creative on mounting it depending on what case you put it in.
