    Hi,I am wondering if these requirements are able to handle the power of MCE.

    I have:

    Processor:Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 2.40GHz

    Memory:510MB RAM

    Tv Tuner Card:ATI TV WONDER 200 PCI Tuner Card

    Graphics card:Intel(R) 82845G/GL/GE/PE/GV Graphics Controller( This is what I am concerned about)

    I am using this to

    A)Share Music and stuff with my Xbox 360.

    B)Record my Halo 2 skills on the Xbox 360.(Will this work considering Halo 2 is an orginal Xbox game)

    Yes, that should be OK. I've seen MCE run on the Intel graphics chipset.

    If you just want to share Music you should just use the Media Connect software for XP.

    I've no idea how you start recording Xbox gameplay on your PC!

    That should be OK as long as you don't want TV or video.

    The TV tunder is not supported. You need one with on-board MPEG2 hardware encoder e.g. Happauge WinTV PVR 150 for analogue. Far preferable if you can receive Freeview is a DVB-T tuner e.g. Hauppauyge Win TV Nova-T

    The Intel 845 graphics is not good enough. You need support of DX9 in hardware so a minimum of Nvidia FX5200
