But i do have 2 old computers at home. One is just lying around and i dont use it at all.
The configuration of the unused computer: (of top of my head)
AMD Athlon 1Ghz, 32mb Nvidia video card :( , 512 mb RAM, ethernet card, onboard audio card (only stereo). I also have 2 wireless routers, so i probably will do the wireless bridging for the internet and LAN.
I was thinking of connecting the PC to the TV via VGA cable, and stereo output.
I was just wondering if it was possible to use this computer to watch movies and browse internet on my Samsung 46 inch LCD (its a full HD one).
just thinking if the computer is good enough power and resolution?
NOTE: i would mind buying some cheap stuff to upgrade my old computer for the above, hopefully which i can use later on with the HTPC.
Thanks in advance for comments or advice.
