Wait on the TV Tuner Card. You can get a NTSC/ATSC/ClearQAM card now, however in a few days/weeks this puppy releases:

4-tuners that support cablecard. Currently, with ClearQAM you are lucky to get only the local channels in HD.

As for HDD, I have 12-15 Samsung HDD approaching 2 years running 24/7, no complaints yet, knock on wood.

That is the first useful card I've ever seen that utilizes the PCIe expandability slot. Interesting.

And all for the low low cost of $399. Thanks for doubling the price of the htpc.

ended up getting this

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6815116015

works perfectly for SD stuff, works but still getting it setup to work with the set-top box we have

but over all I am loving the thing, didn't realize how quick i3 was, and it allows me a lot of expandability if needbe
