If you do a lot of computing that takes advantage of GPU acceleration then a Mini is probably not be the best choice. But if you only do those kinds of things occasionally then it's not a big deal.

Then there's the matter of extendability. Two years down the road i can add another GFX card, a couple of hard drives to build an in-place RAID system and double its memory without an issue...

Or you could upgrade to a new Mac Mini at a fraction of the cost. (Minis have excellent resale value...) As others have pointed out, the dual-drive and RAM upgrades are non-issues.

Ah, decisions decisions. Heart says Mac, logic points to the PC
