    HTPC - Again...

    Hello all,

    As you may or may not know I was looking to buy/build an HTPC a bit back:

    http://forums.hexus.net/hexus-hardwa...5-hd-htpc.html

    Well I was planning to leave this till I cam back from holiday but I came into some money and was thinking of brining it forward. I want to follow the general set up described in the above post. Only thing is I found the 7850 on scan for only £57. I was wondering if someone could suggest a comparative motherboard to the ASUS M3A78-EM on scan (I want to get the mobo / processor from the same place.)

    The Athlon X2 7850 is around the same price at Ebuyer though.

    However Scan does do the following two motherboards as well:

    http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/Asus-...-RAID-uATX-VGA

    http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/JandW...RAID-uATX-HDCP

    The J&W motherboard has 128mb of DDR2 on the motherboard for the integrated graphics card.
