If I'm not mistaking, WMCE requires a 64MB videocard.

Ok.. but.. u get a specific trouble or what?, any message?, any waring?... something like that?...


From MS WMC 2k5 FAQ's:

Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 is a Windows XP operating system available only on Media Center personal computers. Because of their special hardware feature requirements.

quote:

Q. What is a Media Center PC, and what kind of hardware components does it include?

A. Media Center PCs are complete desktop PCs equipped with hardware and software to deliver advanced computing and rich digital entertainment experiences. Media Center PCs include mid- to high-end processors, high-capacity hard drives, CD-ROM and DVD drives, and optionally, a remote control. The systems feature advanced graphics and audio capabilities, as well as networking connectivity.




Ok... at this point, we are talking of mid to high end components, so could be this:

Processor= 1.2 Ghz - 3.3 Ghz (mid to high)
Memory = At lease 256Mb I guess
GFX= High-end GFX, with TV-Turner and HDTV support, o minimun a gf4 or ati 9200..... this means a loooooooooooot of memory in the gfx....
Sound Card = 6.1 or more support

This are suppositions, because I couldn't find the system requirements...

1.2GHz can't be mid, it's even lower than the entry level nowadays

No way a 3DFX collector...just a 3DFX die Hard Player~~

let the VooDoo Roars!!

I alredy told... are suppositions... and 1.2Ghz for mid range, depending of the CPU.. if u r talking of a duron or celeron, even a VIA... this are low-end CPU... but if u r talking of an Athlon XP 1800 (1.2ghz) is a mid-low range CPU, because is cost effective (better performance that even a celeron @ 2.0 Ghz).

Pay special attention to:
quote:
1.1.1.2 Graphics frame buffer memory: 128MB minimum using DDR or equivalent. (Support for high definition video playback and screen resolutions higher than 1280x1024 will require 128MB of graphics memory)
So you see, it's useless to continue this conversation.

Windows Media Center Edition can not be run with a Voodoo 3!
