I know this isn't the right place to ask , but seen as there's not much happening in the htpc section on AVF , i thought i'd ask here , as i know you lot have your eye's and ears on everything these days. anyways , im thinking about building a htpc , and with the new line of CPU's coming soon , i thought i would start looking and shopping around a little bit , so where to start , would an I3 be enough or should i go for a I5 ( should i be looking at AMD's ) ? ( all tho at the moment i don't have anything 4K but the way i go through TV's i'll have one soon enough and poss a 4k PJ < as my current one is starting to get old ) so i gather i'm going to need something to power the signal 4k, will i need a GPU or is motherboard that has hdmi 2.0 enough ? what boards should i be looking at ? if a gpu is needed , will it have to be an expensive one eg: 970/ 980 im asking about 4k now as i want something that is going to be able to deliver a 4k picture and not have to upgrade sooner then later . at the moment there's is no budget , as im just starting to look at things , but any ideas that you may come up with , will then give me an idea on what to spend . if there's anything else i should be looking for please say , i have a copy of W7 and also have an spare ssd , and a NAS drive i'll look at PSU's later as what mobo and gpu i will need will tell me what psu i will need .
