I am currently using the RC version of Windows 7 on my HTPC. I plan on purchasing the official version when it's released.
It's not exactly a robust system, and I may be pushing it's limits, but, it's quiet, low power, and so far it's getting the job done. Since I'm only using it for Media Center, I'm wondering which version I should purchase, and if there are certain features I should shut off to enhance Media Center.
Here's my specs:
ASUS M3A78-EM AM2+/AM2 AMD 780G HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
AMD Athlon 64 X2 5050e Brisbane 2.6GHz Socket AM2 45W Dual-Core Processor
G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory
Thanks for any suggestions...
