Well after toying with the idea of buying one of these for some time, and after some pressure from the misses, I have ordered one from overclockers with the remote.
Hopefully it should be here by the end of the week and then I/we can have all the joys of MP in our bedroom and not just the front/back room.
Will report back with my thoughts
Why did you go for the i7, rather than a cheaper and lower energy consuming dual core?
What server OS are you using? I am planning on using WHS - just because I am used to it.
Using the Asrock ION 330HT with built-in n wifi actually gives me quite stable HD playback from server. I am getting a 150 Mbps connection to my router.
Just thought I would mention it.
