That's for Windows. The absolute requirements for Linux/MythTV would depend
on what you use it for (is it a backend or a combined backend/frontend?).

I put a PVR-150MCE (PAL) into my combined backend/frontend about 2 weeks ago
now and its working fine. I'm using a PIII 550MHz, so you'll be fine.
Playback would be your issue, but I guess that depends on your graphics
card. I transcode much of my content or stream it.

Yes. Works in mine, yours is faster and would have a faster bus so I see no
