The thread that talks to CPU requirements does not really address non-core 2 duo CPU's so I wanted to ask the experts if my HTPC can cut the mustard. Here are my current specs:


Intel P4 660 3.6Mhz with 2MB L2 Cache (1 year ago this was the big boy)

1 GB (2-512 sticks) Corsair Extreme 400MHz 3200 Heat sink memory


I can overclock the CPU to well over 4Mhz if needed but up till now I have not overclocked at all.


So if I replace my EVGA 7800GT with a HDCP compliant video card will this box do it or not.


Thanks

VC1 discs should be OK, but I don't think you'll be able to play AVC ones.

Are you looking to add the Xbox 360 HD DVD?

Thanks makes me feel better, yes I just got the XBOX drive a few weeks ago. It's running fine on the 360 now but with HD-DVD rips looking possible and the fact that I have a 5TB NAS it's looking like the final home for the 360 drive is the PC not the XBOX.
