I have an old GX280 mini-tower lying around, specs are here: http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/opgx280/en/ug/specs02.htm
Would this work as a headless core (ok to use monitor and kb/mouse for setup, headless after initial setup)? Mostly for home automation and audio streaming (probably not video). Might want to have a bunch of squeezeslaves-on-the-core running on it.
So the questions are: 1) is it compatible with LMCE out of the box (without significant tweaking), and 2) is it powerful enough to do the job. Memory and Hd upgrades are not a problem.
