I am getting a Synology 414 NAS (looking at the 415play as well) and loading it up with 4-4TB drives the first of next week. I currently have a 4TB external USB 3.0 drive connected to the HTPC.

The thing with the Mini is, I already have one that was given to me for trade work (late 2012) and it's just sitting in the box.

I might hit up Newegg or Amazon and see how much it would be to...

I don't have any 3d .mkv's as of yet, but will download a few to see how it works on the new setup. I may end up just grabbing an internal BD player for the HTPC to play the occasional 3d blu-rays...

Hmm, something to consider I suppose. What about this card:

Not a hater of Radeon at all. In fact, I know very little about AMD's offerings. I have just always had Nvidia, so I am just leaning towards what I am more familiar with.

What would be the...
