Will swapping i5-4430 for i7-4770k make a difference in games? The 4770k is in my work pc but I rarely do anything real intense on it. When I'm not using it for work I sometimes do video editing and play some games. I have no video card in this pc so I'm using the Intel 4600 gpu.
I just got a new computer, and for some reason I can't stream videos over LAN like I used to be able to with my old laptop. When streaming videos of any type, the video has to stop every minute or two to load, whereas with my old, crappier laptop, it never had to buffer even for 1080p streams.
This will be my first HTPC build. I have built several other gaming PC's but I need help with parts for this HTPC. I am looking for something that will allow me to steam video (Netflix, Hulu, HBOGO, etc.) watch and record TV (not paid cable) rip BluRay or DVD movies to storage so that I can free up a bunch of shelves of movie cases and have the ability to play emulator games.
I'm somewhat knowledgeable when it comes to building PCs but this is my first HTPC build. I think I built the HTPC properly however no matter what I do, I cannot get HDMI output from my HTPC. I've been trying to connect to my TV through my receiver which I previously used a Boxee on and had no problems with.
