Rebuilding my HTPC, The Rebirth of Red Dragon, I mean Red PhoenixMy HTPC has been for setting in my room for almost 2 years just collecting dust. I finally decided it was time to rebuild my HTPC Red Dragon. I went on NewEgg to look for deals in the combo section. Eventually i found a CPU and motherboard combo consisting of a AMD Phenom X3 8750 Black Edition Toliman
2.4GHz CPU and a ASUS M4A785-M Motherboard, buying them together saved me around $40 to $50. I bought the combo deal and just had to wait for my order to come in. In a couple of days my order arrived from UPS and on that same night I got to start building. I installed the motherboard and CPU in my ...
