I really haven't changed anything on the specifications of my computer other than removing Windows and installing a wireless card. Here are the specifications for my desktop. It's supposed to be a media pc however since I don't have windows any more, I don't use the media side of it except for watching videos and listening to music (no live tv) and those work fine in the Mint default media programs.
