> *Memory:* Samsung PC3200 (1 GB kit) (2) 512mb DDR à $106
1 GB is actually an overkill. I have a combined front/backend with 512
MB RAM and I use it as Myth, SQL server, testing webserver, DNS, and for
two remote users running X Window applications, and as a firewall and
> *Capture/TV Tuner:* Hauppauge WinTV-PVR-250 à $90
This card includes a good remote.
PVR-150 also includes a good remote and it is cheaper than PVR-250. I
have it. It works just fine with Myth.
> *AGP Video Card: *Gigabit ATI 9600 Pro w/ 128mb (S-Video Out & DVI out)
> à $74
Overkill. NVIdia MX400 is good enough and it has a passive cooler.
Active cooler adds a lot of noise.
> *Sound:* SoundBlaster Audigy II 24bit 6.1 channels à In Stock
If you insist, but AC97 integrated on motherboard is perfectly adequate.
> *Remote:* RadioShack 15-2116 universal remote à $49
Not needed. See above.
In my opinion you could save some money and get a larger hard disk instead.
