you could make it a desktop and order a power supply from apple put a graphics card in the expansion slot and get a monitor.

yes i was going to put it in a atx server case. because it wont fit in a u1 case because the heatsink of the processor is to big.
hmm ordering the psu and the pci-x risercard from apple, i'm going to do ask the price monday. I think ist going to be verry expencive. but dont have a choice because there is no one how has the pinout yet. ;(
