    Would it be better to use a Core 2 Duo processor with less GHZ, rather than the pentium dual-core?

  2. masonjames Says:

    Hey Jeffrey,
    A Core 2 Duo would certainly give better performance over the daul-core model. Of course, there’s also a price difference. Check out “The Gooder” system, the specs are pretty interchangeable. You could get a faster processor and not get the higher level graphics card if that’s not something you need.
    Cheers

    Thanks for the update. I plan on building a media center soon, and will be coming back here for help.

    2 questions:
    –The photo at the top of the page shows the SilverStone case with a 4″ touch screen, but the shopping cart has a different case. Will the 4″ touch screen work under OS X (Snow Leopard) with the listed motherboard and video card?
    –Have you been able to get the HDMI out to work with the listed video card (SPARKLE GeForce 9600 GT SX96GT512D3L-NM). I have noticed reports elsewhere of good DVI support, but lacking HDMI support–however, not specifically referring to this card.

    The case shown at the top of the page is more of a “dream” than a reality for us. We hope to be able to give this a shot soon though! As for the HDMI, we have been able to get this working on Leopard.
