APU for an HTPC.
This, I forgot about APUs.

I was thinking of changing the case to a Silverstone Grandia GDO4B or GDO5B, but that's not the point. I know virtually nothing of HTPC builds, but is this a good one? Also, what would the required monitor of sorts be? A larger, IPS monitor? Or like a projector?

This build is for the budget, also, if you will be upgrading while LGA 1155 is still around, your wasting your money, so why not the H67? 10 bucks for 100 MHz? No thanks, the i5 2400 is still a perfectly capable CPU...
The case is a mere $27 (@ microcenter if you can pick it up)....
The 2400 is still very capable, and $10 for 100 is a waste. The Mothetherboard had to be cheap, so no overclocking anyway. Missclicked on the monitor

swap the 3570k with a 2500k, also get a gtx 560ti, amazing card for the price, or if you got $400 then get a 670

Here is what I suggest: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/9390
Intel i5 2400: fairly fast for the price, although no overclocking
MSI H67A: cheap
G. Skill Value: cheap
Barracuda: cheap and effective
ASUS HD 7850: ASUS cards overclock well and the 7850 is a very capable card
Thermaltake Case: cools well, especially for the price
Asus Monitor/Microsoft keyboard and mouse: Monitor is cheap and good for gaming (i've heard), and the keyboard and mouse function...leaves around 50 bucks for a headset

Alrighty, so latley, i've been having some networking issues. I continuously disconnect from Xbox LIVE, and it is becoming a big pain in my @#$ (I apologize). My disconnection is usually because of an IP Adress error or DNS Error. I'm usually the kind of guy who can fix these problems, but i cant seem to figure out this one. So if anyone could help me, that would be great! Have a wonderful veterans day and support our troops.

So pretty much what my situation is is that I recently hooked up my 25" HDTV to my computer and is now my monitor. I make Youtube videos and generally are in 1280x720, but when I tried changing my desktop resolution to 1280x720, it would not let me, stating that the TV does not support the format/refresh rate. If there's any possible way to get around this, it would be much appreciated.
