Nice camera work. What cooler are you using? I cant wait to get back from this deployment to start work on mine. That Gigabyte motherboard has everything you could possibly want for a HTPC. Blu-ray players are headed down in price. Around $120-$140. Hopefully by the time I build my HTPC they will be down below $100.
I'm also waiting for the price of Blu-ray player to come down in price. Then I'll start renting Blu-ray from Netflix.
