Should work fine, especially with the Xeon if you're going to be doing any transcoding. It would probably not make a good htpc itself though, as it's multimedia features are scant (as would be expected on a server ).
The Owner's manual only mentions four PCIe slots, so I expect you'd need to purchase a new one.
Yes, this might work as a gaming rig, and yes you could probably drive using only your feet if you really tried. Just because you can doesn't make either a good idea though. [/url]
Watch for deals on the Vostro 260 & 460. The 260's biggest drawback is only 2 DIMM slots, but they're both great PCs for the money.
