    Just purchased a new dell comp with MCE 2004. Here are
    the specs...
    Pentium® 4 Processor at 2.60GHz w/800MHz front side bus/
    HT Technology
    120GB Serial ATA Hard Drive,7200RPM
    512MB Dual Channel DDR SDRAM at 400MHz (2x256M)
    New 64MB ATI ALL-IN-WONDER® 9000 with Remote Control

    I guess my question to you MCE experts would be, is this a
    good MCE machine...and is the video card sufficient
    enough, meaning no fog and good picture quality? Thanks
    in advance...and in comes in this btw 16-20th...i can't
    wait...

    Looks like a good system.

    From other's observations, the ATI cards seem to do the job. I guess you'll
    tell us how it is for you when you get it ;)

  3. Jay,

    That sounds like very powerful monster. You should have a very good MCE
    experience with it.

    Now, to control your expectations, the TV quality may not be exactly as
    sharp as the one you see on TV, since the signal has been compress and then
    decompressed before it's been rendered on the screen. This is not a fault of
    your video card or your computer not being powerful enough (which it is).
    This is probably more noticeable with RF signals (like CATV) than with high
    quality s-video signal (providing the s-video is fed with a high quality
    signal, like satelite feed, for example)

    Enjoy your MCE!

    Regards,

    Luis
