Will this work for a HTPC?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
The computer down below.... will it work for a HTPC? I know I will need a different video card (AGP)no PCIE slots though)) with a TV tuner, and a bigger HDD, but other than those things, is it good enough, or is there more hardware I would have to buy?

The reason being, is when I get back from being deployed, I will build another computer, and want to put this old gateway to some possible use.

Thanks for any input!

Hauppauge TV tuners are great. The PVR-150 is what I've got. Not sure if your system will handle it or not, but it doesn't take much juice for a HTPC.

Thank you for your service. Our thoughts will be with you and your family.
