I'll tell you what I have.

Motherboard: Asrock K78SX. OK, but no firewire and not enough onboard USB 2.0 ports.
CPU: Athlon 2800XP. Great chip, fast.
RAM: 512MB 333DDR.
DISC: 2x160Gb Samsung IDE drives. Quiet and fast. Not raided.
VGA: Chaintech MX4400 (Cheap nVidia card with S-Video output)
Soundcard: Onboard on Asrock
DVB card: Nebula DVB card.
Case: Accent HTP case.
IR: Cheap IR keyboard.
No hardware decoder, that's what the Athlon is for.
