    kind of depends what you want your media center to do doesnt it?
    a point often overlooked when planning a new media center system

    decide what its going to do
    then work out the rest
    one tuner? two tuners? encoding and decoding at the same time? do the capture cards have any processor offloading capabilities? onboard codecs? what not? its all rather important to help define the processor you want tbh
