Looks great! My brother picked up that same case for an HTPC build as well and I really like it.

Looks good bud! That LCD looks a lot better than I thought it would. I was thinking it was going to be really small and useless.

Maybe I should have gone with that case afterall.....

That's the nicest looing nMedia case I've seen so far. What's the model number? I did a quick search at NewEgg and this one isn't jumping out at me in the results.

EDIT: NM, found it by browsing. For whatever reason, didn't show up in the search results for "nMedia". I also find it funny they gave it the model name "1080P". Makes me wonder how long until people stick some old Pentium 4 boards in these and sell them as "1080P HTPC only $300" on eBay.

Its actually called the 1080p. Its confusing because when you see that in the title you think the OP built this for 1080p resolution.

The 5000B is also really nice looking and slightly taller.

Nice HTPC, crappy software. Ditch Boxee and get you some Media Center plus media browser awesomeness rocking.

your so wrong my friend, for what i do boxee is wonderfull. media center is crap you need to add all sorts of add-ons to get it to work. boxee download, install your done. plays my flac music, my blu-ray downloads. now i dont have a tuner card i dont know if boxee is good with that section. its also finds the covers for everything take a better look at my screen pic of boxee.
