180watt power supply? That's gotta be a mistake LOL
Probably not. I did a few builds with earlier models of this. I even put a 4670 in one and it was ok (with a high clocked pentium dual core).
This is an underpowered cpu, but has enough power to get things done and do light gaming due to the far above average gpu power.
1100 Total SSD's handled between two jobs. Plextor M3s, M5s, Intel 320s, and Samsung 470/830/840s are reliable (1 intel 8MB bug failure, one M5s failure). 3 M4 errors, 1 failure among ~75 of them. Sandforce controlled drives, 13 RMAs among ~200 units.
Good deal OP thanks! Missed out on the small form factor Lenovo at Fry's for $100 more. Picked one of these up for the girl and have set it up, good build quality on the case, runs pretty snappy, and nice that it's a single 4GB stick in there, cheap upgrade later on.
Ordered the $17 AR Corsair 430W PSU from Newegg to go with this and picked up an Asus Wireless-N card from Fry's for $30, with all that for $375 after taxes/rebate this is a solid machine for anyone that's not going to be doing hardcore gaming.
