I've had a great experience with the Core i3 processor for my build. Lots of discussions on it here in the forums. Otherwise...everything else looks good for now. Update us on your build and post some pictures.

Nice! Based on your post, I'm assuming that you will be using this to beta test Vail and, ultimately, use it as your Vail production machine. If you try to install WHS v1, just know that all 8GB of memory you purchased will not be recognized.
