Picked up a spare Dell Optiplex 790 from work, it's a decent pc but I have no real use for it. I was wondering if I might be able to use it as a media center type pc, without really knowing what that is. Basically I just need it to play movies stored on a drive, light browsing and maybe some livestreaming sites, I read somewhere maybe apps like kodi would work on windows.
Intel core i-3 2100 3.1ghz
Ati Radeon 5450
It has vga connectors which I could get a converter for to hdmi. It's a nice and small pc which is really what gave me the idea to use it with my tv since it's basically the same size as my ps3 and xbox I could just fit it somewhere behind the tv cabinet out of sight.
Not sure if it's a good idea though with one of these pc's power consumption compared to an android box which I had earlier this year but didn't like the interface.
