3. Important Info I should know

4. Any tips or tricks I should know

1. Do I need anything before I begin?

Apart from media center you don't need anything, however you may want to purchase the following items:

  • Media Center Remote
  • Tv Tuner Card
  • Look into what specs you should have on a mc pc.

2. When I got my computer it came with SiS Utility tray...is that really neceassary for my computer?

That is not vital for your system to run

3. Important Info I should know

You may want to back up your important data. Do some virus and adware scans and make sure your pc is running smoothly before upgrading.

4. Any tips or tricks I should know?

You need to take your time and restart your pc when it says. Do not do it in a rush. Other than that there is nothing else to ad but Good Luck
