I have a second PC sat next to me which doesn't do much at the moment, apart from the odd server app or a quick game when someone else comes round. Yesterday i got sent on offer on a Hercules 3d Prophet AIW 7500 for £88 so I've been considering snapping one up and turning this pc into a HDD vid recorder, but I'm not sure if's powerful enough. At first I thought there was no way it would be powerful enough but then I thought at the time of the first AIW's this would have been considered at least mid end. Anyway its a self built sys: Gigabyte GA-5AX AMD k6/2 450 128Mb Pc 100 20gb Hdd So was my first thought right, that it's too slow, or would it maybe work? I don't wanna spend too much money its not worth it at the mo, and I don't want to use my main PC (AXP 1600+, 512mb). I may come round to thinking about selling that system (if I could get anything for it) and building a powerful one, I think I could put something together for about £230/£250.
