Another first HTPC build thread.

This seems like it will be straight forward. I do have some uncommon requirements though:

1) I do not want to use a video card.
2) The system board needs to have HDMI with 5.1 sound as well as standard audio ports to carry Casatunes music.
3) I will run some kind of front end and store video and music on a file server.
4) Not hardware related but I need to get remote control IR in so I can use a Harmony One to control the front end.
