    Default Media/HT PC Potential?

    Old Dell, Pentium 4, 3 Ghz, 1Gb RAM, 500Gb HD

    Running XP and wondering if it's worth the trouble. Would like to do Hulu, but open to suggestions.

    Thoughts?

    Single core, I'd leave it. I really try to steer people away from anything single-core in this day and age. It would work, but be laggy.

    I agree weak for a HTPC, but did you try to do Hulu with it?

    Then give it a shot, but if you need to buy parts like a tuner, I doubt you have a modern slot type in that computer. So I don't think any $$ to make it work would be worth it. But saying that if it works for what you want, why not?
