I currently use an Asus A7N8X-E Deluxe for my front end with an Athlon
2500+ and 512 MBs of RAM and an Chaintec FX5200 graphics card. I had
no idea what to expect from Myth when I first bought this hardware but
it is working out fine. Just a little loud for my tastes so I am
thinking of replacing it with a DigiMatrix from Asus. We will see
what time brings. Welcome to the wonderful world of MythTV!
