It can handle the backups, music and such but its much slower because its a pentium III machine.
If I was in your position, and had to incorporate your system into my current setup, I'd build a lightweight MCE front-end system, gigabit backbone to two (or more) back-end storage servers with Microsoft DFS data replication between the storage servers. Assuming the media files were important enough to require replication-protection...
