I'm about to purchase a new motherboard, cpu and case to use with LinuxMCE and was hoping for confirmation that this hardware will allow me to get the most out of the software.
Motherboard: MSI K9AGM2-FIH 690G Socket AM2 1000MHz DDR2-800 M-ATX
CPU: AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual-Core Processor 4600+ Socket AM2 (65W)
Case: Antec NSK2480
I have the Hauppauge PVR-150 which I will bring over to the new box as well as 2 gigs RAM and 2 SATA HDDs (320 & 500gb).
My main use of the box will be as a media center with PVR and music use as well as a NAS.
Also, the AMD 690G chipset that the MB uses can do separate VGA and HDMI out. I plan on sending the VGA signal to an old TV and the HDMI to my computer monitor via a 30 foot HDMI to DVI cable. Will the software allow me to have two separate displays (rather than showing the same thing on each display)?
Thanks in advance,
