Good Morning All,
I am relatively new to LinuxMCE and am starting to contemplate my first build. I am looking to set up a core first using as much as my existing computer as possible. I am under the impression (let me know if I am wrong) that if I have a dedicated core as long as the computer will run Kubuntu 0710 then the hardware will be suitable to use as my core. I may have misunderstood though.
I currently am running Ubuntu 0810, using:
Mobo: MSI 845PE Neo2
CPU: Pentium 4 Prescott 3.0GHz
NIC: DWL G520
Graphics Card: Radeon X850XT
HDD1: 250Gb Maxtor
HDD2: 500Gb Western Digital
I am hoping that I will be able to set up a dedicated core by adding an 80Gb HDD and a second NIC. I will probably move my existing HDD’s into a NAS or similar.
If the above isn’t viable then I will go back to the Wiki and use hardware mentioned on there. Just trying to keep the costs down as much as possible.
If you have any advice then I will be more than happy to hear it. Just a bit unsure of myself at the mo…
Thank you very much,
