	Way overkill.

	Most of that box would be under/un-utilized in a Myth system.

	Just get some bargain basement white box PC from a place like
frys and put the PVR cards into it. You could even keep your main 
storage in the Windows box.

	Then don't. Buy something dirt cheap (~ $200 ) to serve as your 
Myth backend. Either machine could hold your storage.

	250GB is not very much though. You may find that you want a whole
lot more space than that.
