Well, then I hope we chose well. <grin>

You have a valid point here.  However, the retail version of the MB and chip 
have the cables, heat sink and fan.  The other items, I'll have to 
reinvestigate to see if I can find an OEM version.... at newegg?

Anyway, after I sent the original message out, it occurred to me that I should 
ask about how to control my system.  I could get a wireless keyboard.  On the 
other hand, my wife got me a multi-device remote control for Christmas this 
year.  It does X-10 and is supposed to be able to control a PVR.  So, I'm 
assuming that I can just install lirc, right?
