I have been scrounging around to put together a MD.
I a trying to keep the build a cheap as possible so I can hopefully have enough soon to build another.
I was looking at this barebones as a good starting point. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16856110057
I think this is the ASUS M2NPV-VM in a ASUS case with PS.
I think I can get the Asus mobo from the WIKI (above) for around $70. I would rather get my own htpc case. The problem is keeping in under $100.00.
Almost every decent htpc I have seen runs at least $149 with a PS.
My origonal budget was:
Mobo - $70 ASUS M2NPV-VM
CPU - $70 AMD X2 4000+
Ram - $25 Generic 512MB
DVD/RW - $30 Whatever is on sale at newegg
Case - $100 - (
I've searched countless web stores and Ebay to try to find a deal but I have not found one that fits my $. Any ideas?
I've searched silverstone, antec, thermaltake, D-Vine etc..
