I have an acer revo I bought back in February. However due to being so busy with other stuff I just haven't got round to setting it up properly as a media server. I plan to run flash stuff like 4OD, BBC iplayer through it etc. However I have come to realise that it may not be up to this as it just has a single core. I imagine running it using a network cable instead of over wifi will help. The description is below.
"Acer Aspire Revo R3600 Desktop PC, Atom 230 1.6GHz, 160GB HDD, 1 GB RAM, HDMI, nVidia GeForce 9400 ION, WIFI"
I am a student and plan to get a windows 7 upgrade for £30 but am not sure whether it would be best to get the 64 bit version rather than the 32bit to take full advantage of the ion cpu?
Lastly how much of a ram upgrade do you think I'll need?
