i have had a plan for a while to make myself a htpc, evere since i removed my second hdd because it was quieter.
i was sent this link from ebuyer this morning
would the duron be able to play all of the divx's and the like i throw at it, will it do it with grace? bearing in mind some are very high bit rate with ac3 sound etc. i know the durons are dogs but i wondered if it would cope.
i have no plans to multitask although the machine will be folding and a sort of network harddisk, i may let it run emule so as to free up my main pc.
i really have no idea of the power of these things, would it be comparable to say, a p3 1gig?
it seems an elegant solution and cheap but will i be able to swap that hs for somethng acceptable and what sort of heat does a duron spit out?
thank you very much.
