Graphics Card to Run Top Skins - Z0m8ie - 2012-04-07 16:34

Hi, Could anyone tell me how fluid and smooth an experience I would get with the most demanding skins in XBMC with this hardware :-

GA-965P-S3 rev3.3 motherboard
Dual Core 6700
GT430

My library is around 2000 movies and 5000 music files

Skin rely heavily on CPU....and 3.2GHz E6700 should be handle all type of skins and the GT430 should be able able to handle all playback or this slightly stronger MSI Radeon HD 6570 2GB 128-bit......

It'll be fine.....one of my HTPC is E7200 with 2.5GHz core and it can handles all skins....
