im wondering if a pentium 4 2.8- 3.2 ghz with ht be decent enough for streaming video from the internet .. youtube,live tv,etc on a 32inch tv thru a vga port as i can get a dell gx620 off my market for 30pounds ... the box comes with 1. or 2 gb of ram and i would want to run windows 7 if possible as thats my prefferd o.s .. i will in the future be using on board video too . also be used for the odd web browsing ( i have laptop that mainly browse on ) ... so it would only be used for films and tv streaming and playback of movies ... would a p4 ht be alright for that .... i can also got a 3200 athlon single core for 25 but iv always found p4 ht better for multitasking ... thanks i only ask because i aint used one in a while

On onboard video you it won't work, but with an entry range graphics card it will be fine. You might be annoyed at browsing on it though... But it won't be unbearable...
if i was to buy a cheap video card like a 8400gs would that make it decent .... i only need it to stream tv at standard quality on tvcatchup website
