I have been saving up my cashola for a new mobo and processor for a while now, for a mythbox that I want to build.  I already have a tv-tuner card, tv-out video card, and a large hard drive for storage.

I was wondering if people think the $200 everex gPC that is being sold at walmart would be powerful enough for DVD/movie playback and streaming live TV?  It comes preloaded with Ubuntu, so it shouldn't be too hard to install mythTV.  Here are the specs I could find:

Mobo: VIA pc2500 (micro-ATX)
Processor: 1.5 GHz Via C7-D
Ram: 512 MB (expandable up to 2GB)
Graphics: Integrated, shared memory (hopefully this can be disabled)
Expansion: 2 PCI slots
Audio: Onboard 6-Ch AC97

Thanks in advance for any help!!
