I'm looking for a cheap USFF (Ultra Small Form Factor) PC to hook up to a 42" LCD to use as a media player.
It will need to be able to run youtube, BBC iPlayer, Sky Go etc, preferably in HD.
I'm currently looking at the Optiplex 745, 755 or 760 USFF, with an Intel Core 2 Duo CPU and 2-4GB og ram.
I'm just wondering about the HD capabilities of the Intel integrated graphics - will they be able to run iPlayer HD etc? Is there much difference between those models mentioned above?
Yes, the integrated video supports an HD image. The current base model in the Optiplex line is the 390 DT, which comes with integrated graphics and an HDMI port standard. The 790 provides an i7 processor but no HDMI, although you could use a DVI-to-HDMI adapter.
Please post back and let me know if you need more help.
