Hey all,

I want to thank you all for the input on this.  Could you let me know if 
I've missed anything or made any mistakes?

Antec Fusion 430
Asus P5B-MX
(1) Hauppauge PVR-500
(1) PCHDTV HD-5500
(1) Intel Core 2 Duo E4500
4 GB PC2 5300 (too much?)
20X DVD+/-R
(2) 750 GB SATA drives
Microsoft MCE Remote

I think I'm going to make the leap and buy this all this weekend so if 
there's anything you think I should consider?  What about a 
keyboard/mouse?  Is that typically needed or do you guys just SSH into 
your MythTV boxes?

Thanks, guys.  You have no idea how much I appreciate this.
