Recommended Posts

dukee152

I am looking into building a computer for my home office and I would like it to play 1080p videos and I am wondering what processor I should get so which is better?

 

intel 13-3225 http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_...aspx?sku=634030

amd 6400k http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_...aspx?sku=617811

amd fx 4130 http://www.microcenter.com/product/408700/...Boxed_Processor

 

I am planning on keeping it for 5-6 years please tell me which one will last longest. I would like to point out that this computer is NOT FOR GAMING.

For a HTPC the i3 is where I'd put my money. I helped my partner's brother do a Mini-ITX HTPC build for about £450- 4gb RAM, i3-3220, Asus P8H61, 128GB Sandisk SSD, Corsair H60 and a GTX650Ti in a tiny BitFenix Prodigy Mini-ITX case. That serves as a dual-purpose HTPC and light gaming PC. As a home entertainment build running a 1080p maximum resolution, you shouldn't need to upgrade in a number of years- though you might want to pick up a 2TB external drive for storage purposes.

It's okay. To be honest, it might be even a bit of an overkill for the i3. B75A-G43 would be more than good enough even. As for the SSD - yes, definitely go for it if you can afford it.

This one is too budget, it doesn't even have SATA3, which would make th investment in SSD a bit pointless. ASRock B75 Pro3 is the way to go if you want a cheap and decent mobo from this manufacturer.
