oh my bad... :p
for that go with a6 3670k cause it can handle better graphics then fx-4100.

and change the psu from cooler master to corsair one cause they are better in general then cooler master. rest is up to you.

Core 2 duo 1.6 ghz with 2 gb ram and intel mb

i think still teh apu will be better cause fx cpus overheat like hell, are unreliable , consume tons of power with no significant performance
only good thing is they overclock like crazy....

Read Somewhere that FX over heat and motherboards.org review says apu outperforms fx so going for APU

see most mobos that have a hdmi port +usb3 + sata3 are expensive
and also only one model (i3 2105) supports hd 3000gfx
it is really rare + >8k
so it is not really recommended
a pentium g620 @ 3.5k + gigabyte ga b75m d3h @ 4.2k is recommended for a htpc
