I have a desktop that I used for storage using Freenas,but have decided to just get a Synology instead.
I would like to use the desktop to run XBMC instead of selling it or let it sit collecting dust. I use an Android box to run XBMC at the moment,and it's not the best at times. There is alot of stuff I don't even use. I basically used XBMC with the popular plugins and that was it.
I'll give you the specs and then tell me what you think . If I need to upgrade anything,let me know.
If I do keep it.I would like to get more of a HTPC case to put it all in if possible,the case now is just to big to put into a media center.
Highlights of the specs..
1.Intel Pentium Dual CPU E2160@1.8ghz
2.64 Bit Win 7 Pro
3.4gb Mushkin PC-6400 Ram (upgraded)
4.Ati Radeon HD 2600XT Video Card (upgraded)
5.Gigabyte Ethernet (upgraded)
6.MSI MS-7525 (Boston) motherboard
You can see the actual desktop here. Desktop
The video card can do HDMI with a HDMI-DVI adaptor.
It's either trying to do something with this setup or maybe just get a Zotac ID41. Let me know.
