Hello, I have been reading some of your posts and need to let you know that I am a real noobie. I will try to explain the best that I can. I have a 4 year old HP model 551 with 1.6 gig pentium 4 and 384 mb ram, I am not sure of the graphics or sound card. I wanna know if I can start the rebuild off of this. I do no gaming with this machine, but would like to make into a htpc used for media storage ,dvd burning and a PVR with a sound card that has toslink or coaxel output. I think that I will need faster prosseser and an upgrade from the 384 RAM that I have, if this is possable in my current case.
If upgrading this pc is not the way to go is there another cheap sollution?
I would also need a myhd card.
sorry about the length of this post just trying to explain..thanks,
