Gunsmoke, thanks for the feedback :)

I would still like to hear feedback form LinuxMCE users on what a 4850e can do on HD playback - I would not mind putting in a Nvidia 7300 until the support for AMD graphicscards are getting better ...

And what kind of CPU power a core for 3 MD has to have.

Maybe the 4850e + AMD is still a good choice for the core ... hmm.

Hello Andrew,

did you get into testing the Gigabyte GA-MA78GM-S2H ?

If I look around it probably needs a newer kernel - or is it possible without ?

You should be able to get 790FX/SB600 working in Ubuntu 7.10 without any issues as they are fully supported by kernel 2.6.22. However for 780G/SB700, you will need 2.6.24 for full support. Since Ubuntu 8.4 Beta ships with 2.6.25, my guess is that it will work.
