Cool Router build critique

Hey guys.

I'm going to be building a low power router for my new house. Its going to be my bro and I plus a roomie, and all 3 of us will most likely be using the internet to the max.

Because of this, I want to have a decent router to handle:
  • DHCP Server
  • Torrents (I NEED the latest distros!)
  • IP Tables firewall
  • MLPPP connection
  • Major QoS for VoIP

For this task, I selected the recently released Atom (I can't wait for Bobcat). Here is my build:

I know Untangle's requirements are high, but I was under the impression the Atom would still function decently. Can anyone tell me otherwise? And do you think this would handle it well enough? I am fairly sure it will but other opinions are always good!
Optimus: Antec P180, Asus P5Q-E, E8400, 4 GB RAM, Asus 4850, Seagate 320gb, Antec TC II

Teletraan I: Asus P5K-E/WIFI, E4500, 2 GB RAM, ATI 3450, Sapphire Theatrix, 2.25TB storage, Antec SP2 400w

My Heatware!
