I am brand new to LinuxMCE and pretty new to linux - though I love it. My goal is to build a perfect (as much as I can afford anyway) media center box. I would like to use a PC that I have laying around, start buying the right components, get the system up and running then buy the right server as I have more funds.
I have a Dell Optiplex GX 520. Processor is: Processor,80551,Pentium D Smithfield For Desktops,820 2.8,BO,Server. To start, I want to watch DVD's, Direct TV, listen to music (itunes) and record TV shows. Will this work or do I have to toss the Dell and start from scratch?
Thanks for your help. Tom
