It should be more than enough for OpenElec...if it is Intel Pentium E6300 / 2.8 GHz dual-core processor, it should handle most skins with ease and Nvidia GT520 should playback 1080P with ease too....

Well, I wan't to use the Aeon Nox skin and I noticed that it's quite detailed and heavy to run

One of my HTPC is E7200 (2.5 GHZ), and it can handle Aeon Nox with ease....

How does OpenElec do with an AM3 mobo and CPU?
I'm having quite a hard time finding cheap 775 µATX mobo's and I can buy a cheap AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+ and a motherboard

plus Nvidia GT520 should work with any OS and playback everything.....

Should I use an SSD as boot device or will a USB stick do the trick?


And now a friend of mine wants me to build him and OpenElec/XBMC HTPC ^^
But he wants new hardware so I've selected this:

Code:
MS-TECH LC-01
MSI H61M-P23 (B3)
Intel G530
2 X Kingston ValueRAM DIMM 2 GB DDR3-1066
ASUS ENGT520 SILENT/DI/V2
MS-TECH LU-430 Bluetooth USB Adapter 

Code:
MS-TECH LC-01
ASRock A55M-HVS
AMD A4-3300 APU
2 X Kingston ValueRAM DIMM 2 GB DDR3-1066
ASUS ENGT520 SILENT/DI/V2
MS-TECH LU-430 Bluetooth USB Adapter 

Will this fullfil all my wildest dreams? Big Grin
