Ok, I'm about to build my first HTPC for myself. The primary focus of this box would be upscale DVD's, music, pictures, and video repository, and web surfing. It will NOT be used for gaming. It will NOT be used for recording live TV. I'm aware the hardware is a bit weak, but for the limited applications I am looking to do, is this good enough?


Specs:


P4 2.4 ghz processor

1 gig of RAMBUS

Plextor 716A DVD writer

Geforce 6600 (256 megs of RAM)

Chaintek 710 sound card

Sony 55" LCD RPTV


The only thing I really concerned is the DVD upscaling. Everything else is gravy as far as I'm concerned. Is the hardware good enough for this? I'd like to have some opinions.


TIA,

Rich

Yes it's plenty for upscaling DVD's and all the other stuff you want.


Did you already have those parts? Buying rambus memory would be kind of insane these days.

Yeah I already have it. It's actually my old gaming rig. I have a slightly better PC that someone gave me, that I'm upgrading to game with. I just didn't want to have this sitting around somewhere doing nothing.


Thanks for the response! Can't wait to get home and putz around with this!
