My questions: Is the processor fast enough to match the memory?
Can I eventually use a 6Gb/s HD on a 3G SATA port?
Is the PSU powerful enough? I like the modular ones but don't want to pay a whole lot...
Is there anything else I might be overlooking that I'll regret once I get it (form factor, compatibility?)
I'm going to keep it for general use at the moment. Probably a PS3 media server. Eventually will probably hook it up to a TV and act as a fully used machine.
