IT Buyer's Guide, setting up a system of small living and powerful HTPC - Video Guide

In this guide you will see how to configure a system for living or HTPC (Home Theatre PC), this PC is small, do not consume too much electricity is relatively quiet, can successfully replace a bunch of devices: desktop PC, laptop, DVD player, media player etc.
Do not be fooled by appearances, if it's small does not mean it is weak in its configuration we used a processor generation G6950 on 32nm with IGP integrated, this processor is a fantastic despite the low purchase price, chipset around which is built motherboard is a H55 latest motherboard is a Zotac format mini-ITX equipped with wireless card, if you look carefully at the tutorial you will see that the board is slightly larger than a rAM.
Despite the size, mini our system will move extremely well, I can say that will move better than most ready-made systems on the market.
With this system of living we can do anything, of course we can not run heavy games 3D can run games with an average degree of complexity.
Integrated video image processor can run smoothly every film, can run even picky 1080P content, it is equipped with HDMI output so we can connect to LCD or plasma TV in the living room.
I chose a mouse kit - Microsoft wireless keyboard mouse features Blue Track technology, this technology helps us to use the mouse on any surface (couch, carpet, textile, leather).
Wireless module is equipped with small motherboard will help us get rid of another cable, this course if we have a router.
I chose optical drive as a Blu-Ray optical drives with this we watch movies at maximum quality on HD LCD or Plasma, but is a living system.
To use this HTPC within recommend you to use XBMC, a media center which will help you stay on the couch while give browse through the multimedia files from your computer, it can be used with the remote course for that you need to buy a remote PC is not mandatory but is more comfortable.

      Thank you very much

      There are several versions of such cables as follows:
      * HDMI 1.0
      * HDMI1.1
      * HDMI 1.2
      * HDMI 1.2
      * HDMI 1.3
      The best choice is HDMI 1.3 that provides high quality sound and image in the play, without having to worry about compatibility even with some older equipment.
      All have the capability to transfer and digital sound.
      On the issue of sound ...
      how do you sound? I understand that you do not have sound in TV cable HDMI audio but the sound goes on the PC? If so, while you get the picture on the TV (HDMI cable in operation) enter the "start-control panel-sound and audio devices, go to the audio tab set the default device: Digital HDMI ... and yes Apply and OK.
      You should not sound audio system of your PC but you on TV.
      To return to the original setting for I inpresia as it returns automatically when you disconnect the HDMI cable.
