So what do y'all think? That's without a monitor, and without XP Pro and Office, which yes, I do want legit copies of. But it seems like a total of about $1100 for an awesome small-form-factor monitorless PC. Thoughts? Suggestions? Quickly, please. My money is burning a hole in my pocket, and if I'm not lucky, something is also burning a hole in my hard drive right now. It sounds that way, at least.

edit: Apparently the power supply maybe can't handle the video card? Crap. Now looking for good 240W video card options... edit again: Yay, All In Wonder! Should work, right?
