Nice to see there are some people from KC on this list. I as well live in
Overland Park :)
The 3800 will be fine but more is always better...
Here is my system:
Fedora 8 64bit/fully updated
MythTV atrpms-bleeding packages
AMD X2 5200 (2.4Ghz)
1 gb of DDR2 800
500gb sata drive (w/10gb system partition and the rest recordings)
120gb sata (w/2.5GB SWAP and the rest recordings)
But i continue to have shuddering HD video when com flagg begins. But that
is a separate issue that i have a email about.
