I need a little help. I have two machines coming into my possession this weekend and I could use some help on figuring out what one I should hang on to for my future HTPC. The first one is a no name core 2 duo 3.0 with 6gb of ddr2 and the other is a Compaq SR5710F 2.3 GHz AMD Athlon 64 X2 4450e+ dual-core with 4gb of ram.
What would be the better machine for my HTPC? I am a bit out of touch on the AMD/Intel war and what is comparable. I have a ati 4650HD card to hook up my TV but I don't have much else understanding of what would be better for my living room. The wife will only let me hang onto one if I can get it going.
Thanks for any help or directions you guys can give me!
