Almost done building my house and going to be ready in the next couple weeks to install and setup my home wiring and whole house audio setup. Wanted to list out what I'm going to be getting just to make sure there wasn't anything that I might be missing.

I have all the network and coax cable ran into the basement to a plywood board now where I will mount everything. Below is what I have thought of, not where I'm going to purchase or necessarily the items, just figured I could find it all at Amazon.

Suggestions welcome...

Router:
http://www.amazon.com/RT-N66U-Dual-Band-Wireless-N900-Gigabit-Router/dp/B006QB1RPY/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_nS_nC?ie=UTF8&colid=2NBE91PBDZXAB&coliid=I3CWUMRGBEMSL0

Wireless Ap: Not sure I'll need this but was going to run this upstairs if needed
http://www.amazon.com/TP-Link-WL-TL-WA901ND-300Mbps-AP/dp/B003CFAU0A/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_nS_nC?ie=UTF8&colid=2NBE91PBDZXAB&coliid=IUOC0AC1MAVC3

Cable Splitter
http://www.amazon.com/8-Port-Bi-Directional-Amplifier-Splitter-Booster/dp/B000WDR94U/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pdT1_nS_nC?ie=UTF8&colid=2NBE91PBDZXAB&coliid=I22KRA18WO8OCZ

Keystone Jacks: No particular type unless one is recommended. CAT 5 and CAT6

Switch:
http://www.amazon.com/TRENDnet-16-Port-Gigabit-GREENnet-TEG-S16DG/dp/B0044GJ516/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pdT1_nS_nC?ie=UTF8&colid=2NBE91PBDZXAB&coliid=I2WY9TLP3NJ7G1

CAT5 patch panel: Probably wont do a phone line so possibly extra network ports
http://www.amazon.com/Tripp-Lite-N050-012-Cat5e-Mount/dp/B000067SC6/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pdT1_nS_nC?ie=UTF8&colid=2NBE91PBDZXAB&coliid=I1FTWYMZBZ0OWI

Power Strip:
http://www.amazon.com/Cyberpower-CPS-1215RM-Rackmount-Power-Strip/dp/B00077IG3O/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_nS_nC?ie=UTF8&colid=2NBE91PBDZXAB&coliid=I2ZX2MLVM7PXUG

CAT6 patch panel:
http://www.amazon.com/TRENDnet-16-port-Unshielded-Patch-TC-P16C6/dp/B0000AZK4C/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pdT1_nS_nC?ie=UTF8&colid=2NBE91PBDZXAB&coliid=I3LTKW1WZ95ZP2

Going with an HTD lync-6 system and have wired for the speakers and keypads all going to the living room. The router will be in the living room and everything else above will be in the basement. Will be adding an HTPC for the living room and run everything to a server in the basement. Got lots to learn there so it might be awhile before that is done.

What am I missing?

You're missing the wall mount (or floor) rack, for those items which are designed to be rack mounted.

Maybe a wall mount mount 14U network rack, for the shallow items, but I'm guessing the HTD devices would need a (smallish) 4 post rack.

I like the look of the wall mount racks. Check craigslist, for network rack and av rack, to see what's available.

This thread may give you some plywood ideas

Work2Play has some pics of his small wall mount Tripplite rack at cocoontech.

A small rack on casters might be a nice option, too.

You're looking for cat5e devices, and not cat5.

Edit - added link.

If you are interested in saving a few bucks switches and routers are cheaper on EBay.
