My biggest question is on the GPU. I'm trying to build a living room PC (converting from a console gamer), so I'll never be playing at a resolution higher than 1920x1080. Does that change how I should think about graphics cards?
All this thing is for really, is playing games on the television. Sure, there might be some web browsing and youtube-ing, but that shouldn't change the spec out.
Also, is the noise reduction technology worth it? Anyone have experience with that?
Also, PLEASE don't tell me to build it myself. I have massive respect for those that do, but I don't trust myself to do it, nor do I really have the time. I understand I'll have to pay a little more, but I'm happy to, and the warranty/support provides me some piece of mind as well.
Thanks GB community, you are the best.
