[mythtv-users] Hardware check

Seeing as the PVR-350 is no longer actively supported for output I'm
looking to upgrade my frontend/backend combo and adding the old one
(Pundit-R) in as a slave backend.

For the new frontend/backend I was thinking of a Gigabyte GA-K8N51 PVM 9RH
into which I plan to drop an AMD Athlon 64 4000+ (Socket 939)[0] plus a Gb
RAM and a Nova-T-500 (twin tuner 1/2 height[1] freeview card)

It's only going 720p (my TV will accept 1080i but downgrades it so whats
the point!) through the DVI so I'm pretty sure the Nvidia 6150 will be
fine but if not I can still add a decentish video card.

Anyone know any reasons why that wouldn't work or if I should look at
something else (based in the UK btw) before I buy?



[0] Seeing as I'm upgrading my PC to dual core I'll have it lying around
and it seems silly not to. :-)
[1] Planning on getting a Ahanix HTPC Case MCE302 which is 1/2 height
cards only.
