PVR Ideal specs
I was wondering what you guys would recommend for a computer solely used as a PVR.
--I'm looking for low electricity/heat
--Be able to easily record and play back at the same time
--Go as economical as possible
Right now I'm thinking the following:
--WD 80G HD - 5400RPM (less heat than 7200)
--looking for MB recommendation
-- 512 Micron RAM
So, what do you think?
They don't make a P4 that is that slow. If you want low electricity/heat go for the VIA C3 1 GHz, it's no Athlon XP but it'll do nicely for a low powered system. The C3 uses Socket 370 so you won't find yourself spending much money on a motherboard either .
Although... if you ran a P4 1.6 at 66 MHz FSB then you could have a 1056 MHz P4.
