Default I need an IR receiver

I need an IR receiver to start setting up mt HTPC. I know most HTPC cases come with them but I'm not ready to buy a case yet. Also all of the receivers I see come bundled with a MCE remote. I have a logitech harmony so I don't have the need for that added expense. I just need IR receiver that I can buy or build, but it supporting the MCE remote format would probably make setup a little easier.
