UPDATE: No rebate necessary now as it's $60.

link [newegg.com]

The included RAM is $40 if you were to purchase it, so (and it gets 5 Eggs with 1,062 reviews so it's not junk), so for an extra $20 you get a MB/CPU combo...

$10 rebate link [newegg.com]

I didn't see this posted (and "yes" I searched).

This is obviously for HTPC (more XBMC / OpenELEC [openelec.tv] I'm not sure about Netflix or HULU), MAME or "grandma" use, but it's a good start for a low-power usage client. The DOA reviews concern me a little, but there are many NewEgg reviewers that shouldn't be doing anything with computers, so I'll take a chance on this.

It appears the memory is no longer included. Mine is already out for delivery, hope to do a build this weekend to try out WMC and Ubuntu Server on it.

Wish they would have free shipping on their other XION mini itx cases; like the black one earlier, however which is OOS.

It's not bad if you needed the 1TB hard drive.
Nice to see that the a case is included. I'm looking for a nice deal on an ITX case and PSU now too.
I'd say it's at least on par with this deal.

I concur with drleephd. If you value the hard drive at 60, it's an OK deal (considering that hard drive prices are all over the place). Normally e350 boards go for 60, ram (8gb) for around 25 (with rebate), and itx case for 30. So, 175-60-25-30=60 for the hard drive. I don't know exactly what hard drive is included in that combo deal, but just to put things into perspective, there was a 1tb seagate hard drive for 50 a couple of days ago.

Noob question. How do I know if this will support 64-bit OS? Thanks.
it's technically a desktop! yes it does suppport 64bit. I have an E350 board and i ran Windows 7 ultimate 64 bit and now running windows 8 pro 64 bit. Runs fine without issues.

No more free memory. Now I have non-buyer's remorse.

this thing sucks in 22-25W idle. that's the same as my lenovo AIO running an i3 sandy... so the power consumption is not THAT low, but it's not too bad for 70 bucks...

Do I need a SATA optical drive to connect with the motherboard? I can't figure it out how to with my current one.

That's for everything. Is that the entire system or just the CPU. That can't be right because the spec shows 18w TDP.

Without it, how to install windows/linux system? Any other ways? USB Boot may be a good idea.
