Upgrade Old Machine for HTPC


The boss is letting me have an old Dell Optiplex GX745 small form factor.

Processor: Pentium Core2Duo @ 1.86 Ghz
Memory: 1 GB
Optical Drive: CD RW/DVD RW
Hard Drive: 80 GB

Ideally I would like to install XBMC Live (or some variant) and keep the processor.

I am looking for advice for a compatible video card, TV Tuner, and RAM upgrades

  1. For the graphics card I'd get something cheap like an HD 6450 then I'd upgrade the RAM to either 2GB or 4GB.
