I've since given more serious consideration to an AMD based build. It is believed that the new & upcoming AMD processors will be AM3 compatible, not to mention the 6core cpu's available now, so the upgrade path is very clear while it isn't so sure for socket 1156. Given this possible change, I may have to go MicroAtx to take advantage of an 890GX motherboard since there are no such boards available as yet in the ITX format.
