A buddy of mine wanted an HTPC that he could use for photo editing, movie, Massive Storage (server) and many other applications. After much himming and hawing he decided to go with this setup.
Build was relatively smooth. The HTPC case was GORGEOUS. Windows Experience rating is attached.
He is quite happy with the machine.
