Need help choosing hardware

#1_HlM_Posted 2/12/2014 5:27:11 PM(edited)
I'm no expert on PCs so I thought I'd ask for some help. I recently bought this Lian-Li case.

http://www.superbiiz.com/detail.php?name=CA-CK101&c=FR&pid=0ea7f2791071bfe51ceaf6ea51da323b14a502e8a8dea19fe5dee4186654d498&gclid=CPvM14_rx7wCFUcV7AodmzMAMg

The thing is I don't know what motherboard and hard drive and such I should buy for it.

I'm mostly interested in it being an entertainment PC, able to smoothly run Netflix, and such, the only gaming I do on PC is omgpop but that's once in a blue moon.

So brothers of Gamefaqs, please help me out? :) I don't dropping another $400+ on things.

Why don't you go take a jog? Better yet, go kick some rocks.
Let me guess you have a blog, follow trends like it's your job.

Well you need to look for mini itx motherboards.

Hard drive, probably just 1 or 2 TB Harddrive. It depends how much crap you will saving on it.

I don't know much about mini itx mobo's but if they have onboard video you can probably skip a graphics card. Other wise youll prob need a smaller one. That case is pretty wack. It would be helpful it they showed it opened up so we could see the layout better.

I'm actually thinking 500GB for the hell of it but if 1TB isn't too much more than a 500GB I'll go ahead and go with it.

Yeah 500GB isn't going to be enough. I've had my 1TB drive for a month now and it's already 75% full.
