you do realize that Silvestone makes a case just like that.

i would go with silverstone.

you can also visit their site. as for parts, you dont need much.

i take it that you plan on running windows media center?

if you are, make sure that the card you chose is MCE compatable.
also, put some money into the video card. HTPC's dont need much proc power. so dont go over board on the proc. the major parts that you should be conserned with are the mobo, video card, tuner card, and sound card.

a mother boards on board sound is horrible. thats why i say get spend more on the sound card.
