If you're going to be using that box for anything OTHER than Myth it
would also be a good idea to get a dual core system. My Myth box also
doubles (triples?) as a file/print server and web development box for
work (apache, rails, and a few extra mysql databases) and having a
dual-core definitely helps when I'm doing some intensive mysql
operations while the myth portion is busy recording a program.
