Hey!  That's the exact same case I have for a new FE/BE I'm building 
as we speak!  Picked up a fairly cheap mobo (Asus P4P800 SE), 
a Celeron 2.6, a Zalman cpu cooler and a silent PSU and 1gb dual 
DDR ram.  I've got a PVR-250 and a PVR-150 ready to go into 
this box as well.  Firewire might be on option when I get an 
HD receiver...

No hard drives or DVD drive.  No need!

I built my MythTV system in this case:

It's has enough room to mount 5 hard drives for a grand total of 1TB
of RAID-ed storage.

Watch out, most on-board audio these days only does one rate, 48000,
everything else must be resampled and sounds like crap :(
