Hi all,
I am looking to cut the cable TV and go all internet tv. I am looking to build a slim pc to run our internet tv, likely Boxee. Looking to stay cheap (sub $450 if possible). I just built my first PC (I5-750, 4890) in the fall, loved the experience and will never buy another pre made pc again. I am thinking about running Ubuntu to get rid of the Windows cost. My big Q is that i am not sure how much power i need in the processor, ram, and graphics. For graphics, i was thinking about a board with an on board graphics on it... is that enough?
Thanks
