I sold the HTPC I just built in December and need to build another one. The last on was mostly free parts (AMD XP2400) so as you can tell, my budget is VERY restricted.
I would like to do this fairly soon.
Since the Sempron 3000 is $59 (CDN), I was thinking of going that route.
Is there anyone who uses a Sempron for this?
The tasks would be:
- Watch DVD's
- Play music
- transfer video from VHS to HDD (DVD) - only about 10 VHS tapes.
I have the wireless PCI card already.
I am also putting 1GB of memory, a 160GB HDD (SATA), DVD-RW.
I have the DVI-HDMI cable, audio cable, KB & Mouse, Video encoder (Win2000XP by Leadtek), OS.
This is going into a Minuet 300 case.
Any recommendations on an AM@ board as well? Maybe one with a DVI port already? How is this
as an option?
