    your opinions on the following scenarios would be greatly appreciated!

    I want to install a multiseat system in our new home; We're watching HDTV (1080i) via IPTV. The server has to serve max 3 clients and will only be used a TV server. The idea is to build a 1U 19 inch case with a mini itx board with onboard CPU and 2 LAN ports, to make it energy efficient

    Now I can choose from two options that are available to me
    1. Use a 1,8 GHz atom processor (D525/2550) with a max of 4 GB of RAM
    OR
    2. a 1,1 GHz Celeron 847 with a max of 16GB RAM.

    Option 1 would work quite ok, since I've tried running a TV server on a 1,3 GHz atom board and that works quite well, also the Atom is a bit more energy efficient than the celeron.

    Concerning option 2 I could install 16GB of RAM and use something like Ramdisk with 12 GB for timeshifting, which I reckon would be the fastest option timeshift wise. But I don't know wether the Celeron would be powerful enough to get windows 7 and TV server running smoothly while serving multiple clients.

    Hi.
    I'm using a Celeron 847 as TV Server, MediaPortal 2 Server, MySQL Server, Webserver, jDownloader and Torrent Client at the same time. I have 8 GB of RAM with a 4 GB RAM Disk (IMDisk). The Celeron is more than two times faster than an Atom D525 and uses exact the same amount of energy. So for me the choice is/was absolutely simple.
