Can somebody help me put together a new cheap HTPC. I would love to keep it under $500
What I would like is
Haswell Core i3 processor
4 to 8GB Ram
separate gfx card would be nice but is not really necessary,
Small tower setup so I can add extra harddrives once my external ones start to fail
As silent as possible as it will be standing in the livingroom.
I live in Honduras but can order all my parts in the USA, but it has to be through Amazon I think because of cc.
I need most of the help with case, motherboard and cooler I guess, but tips on which brands of SSD are better would also be welcome, since I haven't put a pc together in over 10 years.
Thanks for any input
