Hi all, I'm about to embark on another attempt to get a HTPC up and running and was wondering if anyone could advise me as to whether my current PC would be up to the job and/or which components would be worth keeping and which have to go... Current config Asus A7A266 motherboard with AMD Athlon 1.3Ghz CPU 512MB DDR2100 RAM 40GB HD (7200 rpm) Pioneer DVD116 DVD Rom (I've flashed this to make region free) SB Live soundcard Geforce 2MX graphics card (gotta go!) I guess the main issues are whether the CPU is fast enough (I suspect it will be fine) and what graphics card to get (Radeon 9500?). Then it's a case of quieting things down and getting a nice case but apart from that I'm not far away hopefully. I've got Power DVD installed at the moment but it crashes everytime I try and use it (not a good start!). Will get Theatertek as I believe that's the best software DVD player around. Oh and is ME better than XP or should I upgrade to XP (already got the disc btw). Oh and as for the soundcard, has anyone experience of the PURE Digital SonicXplosion DVD card? Cheers, Andy.
