I have just come into some legacy hardware in the form of our family's second ever PC, a Gateway with: P3@600Mhz 128MB RAM 3Dfx VooDoo 3 GPU 20GB HDD 10/100 Network Card I've added a CD writer and a DVD drive over the years, and now it's no longer needed by my family and I want to know if it's going to be possible to use it as a media centre. I'm willing to add some more RAM and a bigger hard drive if necessary, and possibly also buy a digital TV tuner and DVD writer, but of course if the PC's CPU/video card are too slow to do things like streaming video over my network/working with a TV tuner, then there might be no point. I'm quite willing to use it as an 'access point' and just stream media from my main PC, and don't expect to be using it for realtime encoding or any other high-intensity processes, but is the hardware even going to be fast enough to run the sorts of programs that might be used to easily view/record media, such as Windows XP Media Centre Edition? And if not, are there alternatives? Bar simply using it like a regular PC with a desktop etc... Any suggestions or comments would be greatly appreciated!
