I know this is the HTPC forum, but would this PC be a reliable "full-time desktop?" By that, I mean the main computer I'd be using for all my computing needs (not just occasional home theater use)....

Wow, wasn't expecting FLETCH. Definitely will be picking it up. It probably will sell very few copies but is one I'd certainly enjoy. I'd love VACATION on HD, with its really high replay value.
