Well, then I hope we chose well. <grin>

You have a valid point here. However, the retail version of the MB and chip
have the cables, heat sink and fan. The other items, I'll have to
reinvestigate to see if I can find an OEM version.... at newegg?
Anyway, after I sent the original message out, it occurred to me that I should
ask about how to control my system. I could get a wireless keyboard. On the
other hand, my wife got me a multi-device remote control for Christmas this
year. It does X-10 and is supposed to be able to control a PVR. So, I'm
assuming that I can just install lirc, right?
