Re: htpc cpu? dual or quad?
as you can see, thats not an HTPC case, its just a cheap minitower (which happens to actually be of good-quality- see for yourself).
i dont think the transfer rates of a SATA DVD-burner would be significant enough to justify the upped price, and i dont wanna spend more than i already have planned out.
blu-ray though you may have a point, but wont it be slow (playback)?
