I have been Trying to learn what I can about MythTV and how to set it
up. I am planning on getting a new computer while putting some older
computers back in service as dedicated MythTV boxes. I would like some
advice though. I will be using this new computer for everything (TV,
maybe some gaming)
I know a 3ghz will more than do the job, but would I see a performance
increase with a 3.02/3.04/3.06? Basically, would it be worth the $$ to
get the 3.06 or is it just bragging rights?
Do you think it is worth the $$ to upgrade to 1gig from 512meg?
I am going with NVidia since it seems to be the best supported under
Linux. Is it worth the $$ to get the FX5700 or will the FX5500 do?
For the dedicated boxes I plan on getting 2 PVR 350. Both boxes are
1ghz, 512ram with on-board video and sound. Will that be a problem
(these will be hooked to TV's only)?
