Post by Omega1 » Fri Dec 08, 2017 10:46 am

hello I'm not exactly sure where to put this' so I am putting it here. But I am wanting to build a media using what the subject suggests. One I am going to is the ability to burn dvd's/blu-ray's and so on! What I'm wanting to know wanting to know what kinda hardware would I need and why? I'm thinking a dual-band wifi card and ssd's to start out with, any more suggestions? Thanks in advance!

First thing is first, Budget?

What form factor? ATX, MATX, MITX?

Brand preferance, Intel or AMD?

Old parts lying around?

I just built mine. My build is a tight wad build because I have buckets of ddr3 lying around. A expensive build would be a ddr4 build.
