I was seeing slightly less than 50% playing back a 1080i stream on a
720p display.  YMMV

It'll be enough CPU, commflagging will just take forever.  Dumping
data from hardware encoders / HD cards / firewire takes very little
CPU at all.

I have one of those sitting on my desk right now.  Not a bad case, but
it's VERY cramped.  You're going to be limited to one HD, and there's
only room for one capture card.
