I had to have nothing running in the background and it would still have the odd issue with some of my more demanding 10+Mbps rips.

As for a remote, I ended up purchasing a Pcusa remote. It works great with Windows 7, although I only used the remote portion for about 5 minutes. I now use my Logitech Harmony remote for it.
Looks good, gonna go with that or the mediagate. I assume if your celeron could run it for the most part mine should. If not I'll do a budget upgrade.
