Intel, Nvidia or AMD, find out which one suits you the best
With the onset of the holiday season, it's the perfect time to catch up on your movie collection. This is for all you movie buffs who have a collection of HD movies but could not watch them properly, thanks to your age-old computer. Today, we'll be putting together three HTPC configurations, so you can pick the one that suits you the best. Sometime back we had put together a guide on 'building your own Nettop' and today we'll be finally building it to see what it is capable of.
For housing our components, Zebronics has sent us their Tambi mini-ITX case which is perfect for a HTPC. This case is capable of housing a mini-ITX motherboard, a single hard disk and an optical drive, which is just what we need. So let's take a look at the components real quick and then we shall get on with building it.
We'll be using two different mini-ITX motherboards, the first is based on the Intel Atom and the second is a more expensive motherboard based on the Nvidia 9300 chipset. We've also thrown in the crowd favourite 780G in there along with an inexpensive Athlon X2 processor as the third build. So without further ado, let's check out our shiny new components.
