    Buidling a new HTPC - best motherboard / cpu combo?

    so my htpc is pretty old and im wanting to build a new one. I want to stick with intel preferably an i5 (not sure what version etc)

    give me some input on some motherboards and what i5 cpu to use

    i want something with power but not going to break the bank
