I have /basically/ the same machine at home I use as my FreeBSD and  
occasionally gaming machine with 12GB of RAM. It runs FreeBSD *very* well.  
If you care a lot about stability though the downside is that it's not  
server class hardware, no ECC RAM, etc. But for a machine with a lot of  
cores and memory -- have at it!


Cheers,
