I run my Myth system on a lone Hush Mini-ITX; basically a silent box built round the M1000. I use a PVR350 for input, but am currently using the on-board video (with Via's drivers on RH9) for output. This may change if/when the Xv support for the PVR350 allows it to be readily used with MythVideo and MythMusic.
It works fine for me. I can watch and record at the same time, and can also use MythVideo and MythMusic without affecting the recording. When I'm watching something recorded in Myth there is a pause of perhaps a second whenever a new recording begins or ends, but it's not too big a deal, and the playback resumes on its own with no problems.
Hope that helps,
