HTPSish machine????

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So, I want to get a machine that is I guess an HTPC. I need it to run, Netflix, youtube while running a skype call while sharing my screen. I am not sure if the screen sharing makes a difference, the other thing that would be nice if it could do is Steam in Home streaming (not while sharing screen). I am open to finding older/used parts or machines off ebay (like scrapyard wars).


Thanks for the help

Can leave it as is and find and adapter for the Display port outuput to HDMI. Would be a gamble on whether the display could support 1080p monitors.


For what you are asking I personally would try to spring for a first or second gen i3 with at least 4GB of RAM. Graphics card should only be necessary if you have no integrated graphics.
