I am thinking of using an ASUS 1012P EeeBox as a Myth Front End.

Specs are:

CPU 	Intel Atom D510 (1.66GHz) Dual Core
Chipset 	Intel® NM10
Memory 	I'll put 1 GB  or whatever is required in it.
VGA 	Next-Generation NVIDIA® ION™ (GT218-ION™)
HDD 	I'll put a 250 GB SATA drive in it.
Optical Drive 	Not Included
Card Reader 	SD, SCHC, SDXC, MMC
LAN 	10/100/1000
WLAN 	802.11 b/g/n
I/O Ports 	Front
Card Reader x 1 (SD, SCHC, SDXC, MMC)
USB2.0 x2
USB3.0 x1
Headphone-out jack x 1
MIC x 1
Built-in Wi-Fi antenna
USB 2.0 x 2
HDMI out x1
Lan RJ-45 x1
D-Sub x1
Audio jack (S/PDIF out) x1
USB 3.0 x1
e-SATA x 1
Power 	19Vdc, 3.42A, 65W Power adapter
Dimensions 	222 x 178 x 27 mm

Not all the Eee Boxs are the same.

This unit has the nVidia ION2 video system.


The specs for the ION2 system are

 CUDA cores: up to 16
    Standard Memory configurations: 512 MB of DDR2, 256 MB of DDR3, 512
MB of DDR3
    Memory Interface Width: Up to 64-bit
    Hardware Video Decode Acceleration: Yes, 4th Generation PureVideo
    nVidia CUDA Technology: Yes
    Certified for Windows 7: Yes
    Microsoft DirectX: 10.1
    OpenGL: 3.3
    Audio: HDA
    Maximum digital resolution: 2560 × 1600
    Maximum VGA resolution: 2048 × 1536
    Netbook supported display connectors: HDMI
    Desktop supported display Connectors: Dual-link DVI, DisplayPort,
    Multi-monitor: Yes
    HDCP: Yes

The units sell for about $200 without RAM and HD.

Is this a good choice ?

Thanks !
