I'm making a media center out of old obsolete parts lying about my attic. I probably will however add a decent low profile graphics card to it capable of playing games on a decent res, As such I've ruled out Linux as I don't want hassle getting each and every game on the machine.
I'm going to XBMC for the media software on whatever OS.
- 2.4 ghz single core Athlon 64
- 2 GBs ddr 400
- 250 GB hard drive
my question is Windows XP or Windows 7 32-bit for the OS?
Given the specs, I'm torn.
How much RAM does Windows 7 32-bit use when idle?
