[WINDOWS] Hardware recommendation and iMON compatibility
Hi there,

I'm a complete newbie to XBMC but I liked what I saw when I first tried it today Big Grin

I have a rather old HTPC running on Asus M2A-VM HDMI (AMD 690G chipset w/ integrated X1250) and an AMD Athlon64 x2 4200, 2GB RAM.

This system was actually never used as HTPC but more as my former home server just serving Swisscenter for my old Pinnacle SC200.
I recently installed Win 7 Home Premium and tried XBMC for Windows. It looks great, it feels great but the system is not capable of playing FullHD content. SD is no problem at all.

I guess, there is no GPU HW accelaration and the CPU might be too weak.

Now my questions:
I'd like to swap board and CPU to have something which delivers best performance with XBMC. What do you recommend. Noisy fans should be avoided, though.

The system is built into a SilverStone LC16 case which brings an iMON Remote Control. Are there any tips or tutorials how to configure the RC for XBMC?

Thanks for your help!
