Good to hear. Would a different GPU be better?

I am buying this used from someone else, so wanted to make sure it should do the trick for internet HD before I bought it. The GPU in it is old, so I was planning on putting in an 8400GS I had laying around, but I could pick out a different card if something else was better. It has 1 PCIe16 slot.


It's a Dell Dimension c521.

Thanks!

With hardware acceleration working properly, that should be fine. Your CPU's still better than an Atom.

Hulu should be ok since its flash. But Netflix HD might choke a little since it uses silverlight.


I think 1.9Ghz its questionable; It may not actually stream Netflix HD smoothly. But if thats not a concern, you should be set.

Thanks. I have Tivo for netflix so am set there. Just needed something for Hulu, ESPN3 and other web based streams. Will report back once I get it set up post holidays to see how it works.
