Default what android stick to buy?

well im sure there are a billion of these threads but heres mine because im special :3; so pretty much i want one of these to play games/emulators so it needs to be fast (dual or quad core higher than 1.2ghz)and occasionally watch Netflix (i have a chromecast for that though) but it obviously has to have wifi, and i would really want Bluetooth with it so i can hook up my controller to it. i dont know if ram is important you guys would have to tell me if what would be the best, im not interested in putting a custom rom in it probably just rooting it. as for controlling it i sill do not understand how to control it, i see that some come with remote controllers but how would you know which one comes with one. i was thinking this one but not sure
http://www.amazon.com/Tronsmart-CX-9...=android+stick oh and it has to be on amazon because that is where all my money is at lol, i only got 100 bucks so i would rather not spend a little more than that. oh and i see there are some sticks that are 720p and 1080p so im not sure which i would like would the 720p be like what i stream on my tablet when im watching netflix?

anyone? im now looking at the minix series, i see that stick forms overheart so minix neo G4 looks like its out of the picture, the minix neo x5 looks awesome and the specs are perfect but i still dont know if 1gig of ram is enough, the price is right around my alley and the minix neo x7 looks great too with that upgrade to 2gigs of ram but a little over the price i wanted to spend, also i see there are mini versions of these two devices, is there a difference? or is it smaller.

I purchased one of the stick systems a year ago and wasn't really impressed with it. the WiFi is bad and the whole thing seems flaky. In fact i was just here looking for a custom rom for it. I am looking at getting a slightly larger on with ethernet plug and multiple usb ports

(A10-A20WS Andriod 4.2.2os Dual Core 1080P HD Smart TV Box 1GB DRR3+4GB Nand Flash Streaming Media Player Android TV Player White )
also on amazon. The little one only had 1 usb port so i could only have a keyboard mouse combo or one or the other. I am also partial to being wired since i have multiple laptops, phones and tablets already on my Wifi.

Good Luck with whatever you pick
