[mythtv-users] 800 MHz P3 for HDTV

I've been using an old Intel mobo P3 800 MHz machine with an Hauppauge
PVR-350 for SDTV, and it's been working fine.  The hardware
encoding/decoding on the PVR-350 does most of the work, and performance has
not been an issue.

Now I'd like to move MythTV to HDTV.

Will the old P3 800 MHz machine be fast enough for HDTV if I use an AGP
nVidia display card with XvMC to do the HD decoding?
