    It looks like a good option for people building dedicated WCG machines, then you don't have to worry about Windows or a HDD. Yes, I know, Linux is an option, but it is sometimes difficult to set up :p

    i am going to try this out after a few hours of sleep. It would save alot of time getting a HDD and waiting for it to ship also it would be cheaper.thanks Ion
