As some of you may know, I am planning out a Media Center for some point in the future, and whilst it'll initially be VistaMCE, as I don't have any need for the features( like Home automation, VoIP etc) yet, but I intend to build it so that when I do need those features, the upgrade (as it definitely is an upgrade) to an LMCE Hybrid is as smooth as possible.
I just want to check, however, that everything will work with LMCE, and then I can see about where to get the funds to buy the bits.
Currently, I'm looking at:
(Already have Motherboard, and case no idea what it's called though, but it has 3 PCI ports, and a graphics slot.)CPU:
AMD Athlon 3200+ (It might be a 3400+, not sure. No overclocking done or planned) (Already Got)RAM:
1GB atm, and will probably get another 2GB, so 3 GB overall.GPU:
nVidea GeForce 8500 (Already Got)TV Tuner:
WinTV Nova-TD 500 (It's not a Diversity model, so I THINK it's supported :/)SPU:
, or this
A cheapo DVD drive, connected via a SATA -> USB thing
. Does LMCE support this?
And of course, another NIC.
Another thing: how well does LMCE support the use of the E71 as an Orbiter? I want to get one, but will have second thoughts if it doesn't support it.
Thankyou all very much in advance!
