Media PC?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello Forum.I am not new to XBMC as I have been using a ATV2 for the last year with mixed results.It has been good but the ocassional buffering has me looking for another option.I have found a nMedia PC htpc-6000b for sale.It is running windows XP with 2G of ram.the board has a dual core processor and the seller tells me that it also has dual wireless cards installed .This is all I know about it at this time.What questions should I ask the buyer and am I right in assuming that this will be far better than the ATV?Any help and suggestions would be appreciated smile.gif

Probably ok but an i3 or better with 4Gb will future proof you. Easily the best HTPC is an AsRock Vision 3D if you can find one on EBay. The reality is if you compromise early you will be regretting it

I agree.

You might want to also consider the Intel NUC. It is i3 based, very small, quiet and runs XBMC really well.

You mention wireless and buffering......are you sure the problem isn't the network and not the device CPU?
