My System Specs

Default

Yeah, scratch SSD. I went with Intel, so I can upgrade HTPC with my current Q6600 down the road, G31 looks good:

NCIX.com - Buy ASUS P5KPL-CM mATX Intel G31 LGA775 1PCI-16 1PCI-E1 2PCI SATA2 Video Sound GBLAN Motherboard - P5KPL-CM In Canada.

NCIX.com - Buy Gigabyte GA-G31M-ES2L mATX LGA775 G31 DDR2 1PCI-E16 2PCI SATA2 Video Sound GBLAN Motherboard - GA-G31M-ES2L In Canada.

E5200 around $70:

NCIX.com - Buy Intel Pentium Dual Core E5200 Dual Core Processor LGA775 2.5GHZ 800FSB 2MB Retail Box - BX80571E5200 In Canada.

I'm thinking about that whole deal with built-in nVidia and HDMI, it costs more but it would just solve so many problems, space, noise, heat:
NCIX.com - Buy ASUS P5N7A-VM mATX LGA775 nForce 730I/GF9300 DDR2 PCI-E16 PCI-E1 2PCI SATA HDMI DVI VGA Motherboard - P5N7A-VM In Canada.

One tight case:
NCIX.com - Buy AeroCool M-40 Black mATX Cube Case 2X5.25 1X3.5 2X3.5INT No PS LCD Display Front USB & Sound - M40-BK In Canada.
