I would suggest this keyboard for watching movies.....cheap with shortcut buttons, and microsoft makes some good keyboards.
AND
It doesn't freaking matter what chipset the guy is getting if he isn't gaming or overclocking! He's watching movies, all you need is one that will support the right CPU that you want: i. e. Intel or AMD.
thats true - personally, its just hard for me to grasp i guess- not overclocking- but also in my experience the nforce chipsetsseem to be associated more with higher quality boards.

I appreciate your suggestions, but I think my combo is better than any of the ones that they are offering:

AMD Athlon 64 X2 3600+ Brisbane 1.9GHz Socket AM2 Processor Model ADO3600DDBOX - Retail - $63.99

WINTEC AMPO 1GB (2 x 512MB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model 3AMD2800-1G1K-R - Retail - $39.99

MSI K9VGM-V Socket AM2 VIA K8M890 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard - Retail - $48.99

Am I wrong?

Oh yeah. About the keyboard. I really like the features on the keyboard you suggested. I did have my heart set on a wireless keyboard, but after reading reviews, it seems like they malfunction quite a bit. Is the MS keyboard a better option? Could I just get a wireless mouse instead?

while i know you are only using this for movies, im just saying, for the same money you are spending on those components you could get much higher quality and more reputable names.

edit:actually id go for the kingston RAM as it's DDR2 800 as opposed to the DDR2 667 Corsair for the same price and kingston value RAM is just as high a quality product as the Crsair Value RAM.

Any suggestions for the keyboard/mouse? I need at least the mouse to be wireless. Unless they make some sort of wireless multimedia controller.

If you don't mind spending some money, Logitech FTW. I have the MX Revolution Mouse and the G15 wired keyboard. I never really saw the benefit of a wireless keyboard, as it's usually static. I know Circuit City has several MS and Logitech wireless keyboard/mouse combos, but I couldn't comment on the quality.
TBH when it comes to mouse/keyboard, once you pick from the good three companies (Logitech, MS, and Saitek) it all comes down to budget, ergonomics, and functionality.

For peripherals such as monitors, keyboards, and mice, I always recommend that you use your own judgment. The reason for this is that these are your primary means to interface with your system. There's simply no substitute for trying things out on your own and then making your own choices based on what you liked best/least, as well as what would fit in your budget.

What feels good to me may not feel good to you; a monitor that is great for you may not work at all for me. These are all subjective choices.

Hope this helps you!

OK, I have everything except the keyboard/mouse. I am still deciding between two choices. Here's my list (hope it is a good link):

Thanks, man. I call everything Monkeypoop. My hard drive is always labeled as such. I like the reviews of your case, but mine is still cheaper and the only difference seems to be the cooling. Mine, however says that it has easier access fan mounting locations, so I think I'm going to stick with it. What reasons do you have for going with the other one?
