    Not sure if this is in the right section - mods feel free to relocate!


    I want to build a cheap PC and put a DVR card in it. What specs do you think I should have in order to properly run a 4ch DVR card?

    I already have the monitor and all that junk.. Im talking the raw specs. do i need more than 1GHz? is 1G RAM enough? I have an 80G hdd that should work .. so what Processor MIN is okay?

    thanks!

    Do you have a DVR card in mind? Look to see what specs the card and the software will need - you may find that you need a bigger hard drive.

    well the HDD aspect isnt the problem, more or less what MHz/GHz would I need it to be MIN. and RAM..

    basically im wondering if I can convert my old 'doorstop' computer into a DVR..

    Well then there's your answer, 800Mhz will do, obviously the faster the better it'll perform.
