Been looking for an HTPC for a while. Was thinking of trying to find a cheap Micro ATX case, mobo, etc off places like tigerdirect, but how would this do with the following?
1. Netflix (I have seen MS Silverlight be too taxing for lower systems)
2. Hulu (Also concerned about how demanding it is, and do not want to pay for Hulu Plus)
3. Playing ISO dvds videos, most likely from my NAS
4. Playing HD movies
Also, how customizable is it? Such as if I wanted to change video card or CPU, is that even possible?
XBMC does not do netflix.
If you want XBMC and Netflix you need to use windows and have XBMC as an application you can't use a direct boot XBMClive (XBMCBUNTU).
If you get this and want to do everything in points 1-4 you need to load windows.
