    Default Will this work? New to all this...

    Hey guys,

    I currently already have a Macbook that runs great, but im going to get a HTPC. I just bought an old Dell GX280 slim design. I plan to put a 512M 8400GS ASUS graphics card in it, 4G Kit-800(2x2G) Kingston RAM and a Seagate SATA 500G HD. I havent got the computer yet but the ebay description tells me: PENTIUM 4, 3.2GHZ HT Technology 64bit FAST CPU and INTEL INTEGRATED ONBOARD 82915G GRAPHIC CARD.

    Firstly, is this computer compatible with installing Leopard? I had a look around but havent seen anyone post whether its possible with a GX280. Secondly, what distribution would i do? I have the Leopard retail disk and i was reading the thread where you use it and a boot loader, but everyone seems to be posting errors with it. Thirdly, i already own EyeTV, which is a tv tuner usb for my Macbook, would that hardware and the EyeTV software work on this computer?

    Cheers for any help

    PS The 8400GS is a low profile to fit into the system.

    Looks nice, you can try with iPC or Ideneb, not sure about EyeTV, check the HCL
