Other than the mobo having a very primitive BIOS, no 1394, and spacing issues, its seems liek it has fairly decent reviews. Power supply is questionable I'm sure, but other than that... I can't put the same system together for less than $450 shipped on any site I use.
I've never built with intel. I'd like to put together an HTPC for Blu-ray (maybe) but mostly just DVD and some nice audio capabilities.
