Re: Old/crappy pc/laptop users, come chat and share here!
That's very close to what I have in my HTPC setup, except I swapped out the 15.3 GB HDD for a 100 GB notebook drive from a dead notebook. The little 6200 PCI card is a decent card as it will do VGA, DVI, and SVHS and is silent. Mine is outputting video to a CRT TV through the SVHS port. The GPU is actually decently-matched to the computer as the 6200 would have been a decent card when your computer shipped and the Celeron 1100 was a not bad CPU then, despite it being a budget Celeron. It was no match for Athlon Thunderbirds but it did give the expensive P4 Willamette a run for its money.
