your talking about the wrong form factor, I am talking about micro-ITX not uatx the main difference is a micro-itx board is just 6"x7" which is basically the size of the back plate of a standard mobo .

To Sedka this is for you. all you should need:
mobo/cpu: Via made with built in chip I would use this 1.8 ghz version VIA EPIA SN-Series Mini-ITX Mainboard - VIA Technologies, Inc.
Ram: 2gb ddr2-6400 any good brand
Psu: 120W external (usually the size of laptop charger)
Case: Choose your own I personally like this: Psile | Silent Media center or living room PC according to Nexus you stick high grade Case stickers on they actually look really professional with a high quality sticker plus you can just rip the sticker off and start again if bored.
Hdd: 320gb Seagate barracuda 7200.11
gfx: 8500 or something on a unbeatable deal passively cooled I guess would be preferable as it keeps noise down

For research - news is a good start although if you look around you should be able to grind down the price overall and remember that the only "specialist components" are the Mobo/cpu combo, the rest is just standard tech
