    256MB Ram
    15GB Harddrive
    6GB Harddrive
    Toshiba DVD/CD Rom
    3DFX Voodoo 3000 w/ TV out
    Aureal Vortex 3D Sound Card
    Win XP Pro (also have Win 2000)
    HP CDRW

    Thanks.

    I'd look at a new video card for sure, but I don't know about soundcards to help on that.

    Otherwise it's good for a HTPC.

    How quiet are the HDs .... what about the powersupply?

    How much are you looking to spend? You can get a very sweet HTPC package for well under $700.

    Get an ATI card. They have perhaps the best visual quality other than Matrox cards.
