FYI,  I am building my first MythTV system and have ordered the
following parts from NewEgg.com:

Athlon 64 X2 4200+ 2.2GHz AM2
MSI K9NGM2-FID AM2 nVidia 6150/nForce 430 MicroATX
1GB (2x512MB) Geil DDR2-800

I'm scavenging the rest from leftover parts (case, power supply, hard
drives, DVD burner, memory card reader, IR receiver).  I'll be hooking
the DVI connector to my Westinghouse 42" 1080p LCD.  Yes, I expect to
see really good High Def from this setup.
