That should be fine, although more memory always helps. Only problem you will find is watching HDTV, your CPU will struggle.

Should be adequate, although I would consider adding more memory, an extra 256MHz at least.

Yes, I agree with pinkerton. Graphics memory and system memory may be a bottleneck, but you should be OK with what you have.

Chuck a gigabyte of RAM in there and your computer will run four times quicker as well :D

Good point, pinkerton, regarding CPU and HDTV, if that's his aim at some stage.

Yes, you CAN!

Standard viewer software will do it for you. MyTheatre, ProgDVB etc.

Find a retail STB that can do THAT! :p
