Many Nikon shooters are hoping for a lower res FF body, and a 24mp D600 may certainly answer many prayers, assuming it's spec'd well in other areas, too, which should be a given based on their...

I've had mine for a couple weeks now and, apart from the small form factor, it's one of (if not the) best cameras I've ever used. Overall the feel and build is much better than the MKII as is AF,...

I was thinking about an APEVIA ATX-CW500WP4 500W, which is really cheap ($20) and relatively quite. I'm open to suggestions though.

I understand that, but an on-board gpu isn't going to float when it comes to gaming, will it? I hate consoles, so I'd really like to use the HTPC as an 'all-in-one' unit.

EF-S lenses hold their resale value very well, some as well as L lenses. The same applies to some third party lenses designed for APS-C (i.e. Tamron 17-50).
