Well for PSU, i tracked down a Corsair HX520, because since it's a SFF case, space is limited and having as few wires as possible really helps :thumbsup2:

As for OS, if you're familiar with Linux, you can use that and there are no shortage of front ends for it either. For mine I went with w7 HP and i use XBMC. Boxee is also a free alternative (and i believe it's based of XBMC)

Yeah I was thinking Ubuntu + XBMC

 

As for the other components, I'm just searching and trying to figure out that best.

 

SDY-do you have a tuner card/remote?

No, not yet anyway. I'm planning on using it for digital media, movies, music, web video, that sort of thing.
