hi there, i'm new to this forum and have a little knowledge about hardware that i have to choose.
i spent hours looking for the right cpu and mobo and other stuff. here is my set so far
H10 case intel g3420 pentium cpu
some asrock basic 1150 micro atx or mini itx motherboard with optical out
some 1600 ram a 30 gb ssd for windows 7/8
the linear PSU from hdplex
250w hifi dc atx convertor
audioquest dragonfly dac (later in the proces)
3.5" hdd for music storage (or rather an external hdd, any thoughts?) what do you guys think about the setup?
my goal is to create a system designd for my hifi stereo system (marantz pm6004 amp en 2 triangle speakers) that can run silently en at the same time fluently (xbmc) en play all my AIFF files.and mkv and blue rays but here is where it gets complicated.
does the linear psu and the hifi convertor will have any effect on my audio pperformence of my system, when i'm going to use a DAC via USB or via optical? i know that it will improve sound via the standard 3.5mm jack, but does it improve the digital signal?
please some help, ty
