Anyone see anything wrong with repurposing this machine as a core to start with?
Compaq 6000 Pro WS dual p4 at 2ghz 2 GB. nvidia quadra . I added a sata controller and have 1 TB for the OS and esata port for drive in it. This box is about 7 years old.
DOnt know about quadro support, but if Youa re planning to use it as headless core (not as Media Director) i think it should be fine. Dont forget the second NIC!
