i think im probably going to run WIN7 extreme edition but im open to other OS
what applications would be best to use and would this hardware be ok for a HTPC

thinking about it i may go with windows XP MCE but again what OS and software is best for a HTPC

i have had this system since 2004 and since then it turned into my baby in a way time i have ever owned something and whant to keep her running instead of laving it to rot

posted here since its intel based

i also have a dell optiplex GX 520 sff socket LGA-775 that i could use but needs new PSU ect has been completely striped
