I'm currently in the process of upgrading my tv's multimedia box.
I currently have a Asus O'Play, that is still working fine, but since they stop giving updates, there is some codecs that I can't read, and I would like to have more option on my multimedia box.
For this multimedia box, I would like to install kodi (formerly known as xbmc), probably kodibuntu.
I'll continu tu use it to stream movie from my NAS (so I need samba or nts support)
And I would like to be able to play emulated games (up to the wii, with no or almost no lag)
It's very important for me, that the box is small and discreet, and does not make sound.
At the moment, I'm looking at some Intel nuc to do the job.
At work, I have a intel nuc BOXDCCP847DYE (intel celeron), for streaming and internet, it's working perfectly, but when it come to games, especially on the wii, it's really lagging, I might need a more powerfull one.
So I'm looking at other models like the BOXD34010WYK or BOXD54250WYKH1 with the main difference are the cpu and graphics card (core i3-4010U, intel hd 4400 for the first one, and core i5-4250u, intel hd 5000 for the other)
The second one is about 100$, do you think I will really see a difference?
Or the first one will be enough?
Or maybe do you have a completly other suggestion? Other model or brand?
