    AMD Athlon 5350 2.05 ghz, 2mb 4-Core
    ASRock AM1B-MDH Micro-ATX Motherboard

    Enough na ba ang 4GB memory?

  • AMD Athlon 5350 2.05 ghz, 2mb 4-Core

    Budget is no longer an issue for the items mentioned above, just making sure it performs well.

    I want to replace my current HTPC (AMD trinity + discreet GPU, case cooler master elite 120)

    try ko sana un AMD am1, tanong ko lang dun sa mga owner dito malakas din ba mag init ung am1?
    if ever na ganun din siya mag intel nalang ako ung g3240.

  • walang built in na HDMI yung mobo ko.. yung yung video card ko lang na GTX 560 meron.. kaso hindi na ako naggagames kaya sayang kuryente kung pang movies ko nalang..

    ok lang ba bumili ng HDMI pci card nalang? or meron bang DVI to HDMI adapter?
  • Meron DVI to HDMI adaptor available. 2 types yun pero gagana yan pag meron ka DVI onboard.
  • @Hesh

    sorry VGA lang pala yung mobo ko.. haha.. ang mahal pala ng VGA to hdmi converter sa cdrking P1,880..

    no choice pala ako kundi pag tiyagain knalang yung videocard.. ayaw ko naman bumili ng MOBO na may HDMI na.. kasi mapipilitan ako magpalit ng proc.. doble gastos pa..
  • @jac9
    If you're not gaming, maybe a Geforce GT 630 64-bit or Radeon 6450?
  • mga sir ask lang kasya kaya sa cm elite130 case yung am1 Asrock AM1B MDH?
  • @japoyinc
    It won't fit.
    Most ITX casings support up to 2 slots because of dual-slot video cards.

    Also, ITX boards have only four mounting holes, one at each corner.
    The AM1B MDH has six, meaning it's larger than an ITX board --> it's actually a micro-atx board.

  • ay atayin ko pa bago itx board ng am1 meron na kasi ako elite 130 thanks.
  • Ganda ng sapphire r9 285 mini! Sana meron na ng 1st week ng september. Pang htpc na, pang gaming pa. Hehe
  • Kung plan nyo mag build ng murang ITX ne setup na pwedeng pang HTPC, gaming, etc. pero namamahalan sa mga ITX na motherboard.

    Merong mga motherboards na hindi ITX pero hindi rin kalakihan gaya ng mATX.

    For example... Biostar H81MHV3

    External Image


    Around 2,000 pesos lang. Hindi kamahalan unlike ITX board na nagre-range from 3K to 4K.

    Kasya sya sa ITX cases like Cooler Master Elite 110

    External Image


    Note: Sa ganitong setup limitado ka sa paggamit sa GPU na isang slot lang.

    Planning to build this setup

    Intel Pentium 20th Anniversary Edition
    Biostar H81MHV3
    Cooler Master Elite 110
    Palit GT 740
  • mga sir may marerecommend ba kayong htpc case na may 4+ 3.5" hdd bay?
    for media storage po kasi magiging torrent box na rin.
    2x 3tb and 2x 2tb po ilalagay ko.
    thanks..
  • May reviews na kayo ng J1900 Celeron? May dropped frames pa rin ba - an issue with the previous Intel GPUs?
  • good day po mga master. planning on building an htpc, pang net at playing 1080 movies.
    eto po yung plan ko:

    cpu:AM1: AMD Athlon 5350 2.05
    mb:am1 Asrock AM1B MDH
    Hdd: 2.5, WD Scorpio Blue 1TB, WD10JPVT
    ram: G.Skill Ripjaws X 8GB DDR3 4gbx2 1600Mhz

    ano po ba recommended nyo na psu, less 2k lang sana. eto pinagpipilian ko:

    Antec VP450P 450W
    FSP SuperSonic 300W
    Xigmatek 400watts (X-Calibre) 80Plus
    Corsair VS 450watts (VS450)

    meron pa ba kayo pwede ma suggest? tia
  • ^ IMHO may go for ANTEC maganda ang OEM nyan FSP
  • @odie46

    FSP 300W is enough to power that rig. Unless you're adding 2 or more HDD's, much better to settle with the Corsair then. Pag wala, that Antec VP is your last choice.
  • @Silent / heesh
    Salamat. Baka ung 300w na nga lang kunin ko. Wala naman ako balak mag dagdag ng kahit anong peripherals. external hd lng.
  • Kasya kaya yung MSI H81-M E33(Dimensions (W x L): 8.90" x 6.81") sa Cooler Master Elite 110?
    gagawin ko sanang htpc.
