Thumbs up Gaming HTPC - Budget 40000 INR


Hi Friends,

i am planning to buy a new HTPC and have a budget of around 40,000 INR (+ 5000 INR)

The following are my requirements:
1. Video Output to 32 HD LCD TV (so no monitor required)
2. Sound output to Logitec Z 5500
3. want a system with Wireless keyboard & mouse
4. Should have wifi & bluetooth
5. should have blue ray capability (reader a must, BD-writer would be a dream in this budget)

Usage from system:
1. Gaming (should be able to play all current games at mid to high resolution and future games at mid/low resolutions
2. Direct 11.0
3. Internet surfing - so require an OS
4. Home Theater use- watching movies - 70% time, 30% listening to songs

Also how are - Dell Zino HD, Bragpc.com's FJ8. Please advise guys who have built your own HTPCs

Please consider me as a noob.

Re: Gaming HTPC - Budget 40000 INR

This is how I would build the Gaming PC which can also act as an HTPC. But its definitely shoot the budget if you wanna have a Bluray reader and wireless keyboard/mouse combo.. and specific requirement like bluetooth.

Intel Core i5 2400 - 9K
ASUS P8Z68-V - 10K OR (if you want Intel HD graphics and would not do high OC)
ASUS P8P67-Pro - 11k (no Intel HD graphics but would OC like Hell)
Corsair/Gskill 4GB X 1 1333 MHz DDR3 - 1.2K - 1.3K
WD Green 1TB - 2.5K
Asus BW-12B1LT Bluray Burner - 8K OR
LG Bluray reader - 4-5K
Zotac 560 ti 1 gb ddr5 - 12 k
CM690 cabinet - 4K
Corsair GS600 PSU @ 4K
Logitech Wireless Keyboard K340 - 2K
Logitech Wireless Mouse M215 - 1K
================================
TOTAL 50700



Now you can decide where you want to compromise ...... Also I havent included wifi yet, but the best way is to get a router and a wifi dongle and configure the same.

This looks great. One question the CM690 cabinet looks very big. I was checking and found that it is a ATX. Is there a cabinet of mini atx or micro atx where i can fit all these components?

Re: Gaming HTPC - Budget 40000 INR

Try this:
Intel core i3 2100: 5800
Gigabyte GA-H61M-D2-B3: 3450
RAM: Corsair CMV4GX3M1A1333C9 (2 x 4 GB): 2800
SeaSonic S12II 520 W PSU: 3500
Graphics card: MSI 6870 Twin Frozer II: 14000
Hard disk: Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 1 TB: 2700
Sound: Onboard SPDIF header
Keyboard mouse: Logitech wireless combo: 1100
Cabinet: coolermaster elite 310: 1850
DLink USB wireless N adapter: 850
Bluetooth dongle: 100
sony Blu ray Writer: 9399
Grad Total: 45749

If you want to cut the budget, go for a ATI 6770, it will cost you around 7000, so you save 7000 over the graphics card there itself.
Core i3 i suggested will be enough for a ATI 6870 and more than enough ATI 6770 so no bottlenecks there.
The Gigabyte board i suggested is a basic board with decent features. This board cannot overclock, nor does the processor overclocks, however i doubt whether you would over clock as it will call for additional cooling and so more rs spent on cooling and more noise produced.

Thanks Vaibhav!! As i mentioned, i am trying to keep the form factor as small as possible, more on the lines of a Dell Zino HD. So i did consider the Bragpc.com FJ8. if you can suggest something on these lines,then it will really really help.

As far as i know a PS3 will never come even close to a HTPC. mac mini newer version doesn't have Blue ray drive or even a dvd drive. The earlier macs are powerless dell zino i just checked cannot be bought without monitor and can't be fitted with a blue drive!!
