AMD Fusion E-350 HTPC with XBMC

After playing around with my Netgear NTV-550, I wanted something more user friendly, more powerful and more beautiful. So I decided to build an HTPC (Home Theater PC) based on AMD’s new Fusion E-350 APU (Accelerated Processing Unit). The E-350 APU offers low power usage, integrated Radeon HD 6310 graphics and slightly better performance than ION-based systems. My goal was to build an HTPC that is small, silent and able to play full-HD content on my network. I am using XBMC with the Aeon MQ2 skin which allows the device to play every popular media format, be user friendly and look stunningly beautiful (read on for pictures of the HTPC itself and screenshots of XBMC).
