Also would reccommend running 2 HDs - a large one for your media files and a smaller one for your OS and Apps - you'll thank me when you have to rebuild your system somewhere down the road...

Excellent point on finding a board without the onboard video. If I remember right renethx was stating that anything in the 3XXX series had poor post processing if I remember correctly which was the reason I went with a 4550.
The reason I went with the more powerful CPU was to do multiple video encoding when I add up to 3 HD TV Tuners. However now I am thinking about going with the 5050e to save on power and noise.
