Re: Building Myth System on the cheap, recommendations?
I'm sorry to say this, but those computers won't have a hope of running H.264 HD content, sorry. VDPAU support starts at the GeForce 8 series, and AFAIK they're virtually all PCI Express, while the D510s are AGP4X.
You CAN build a good MythTV system on the cheap. You just need to get clued up on these things and shop around.
