May I ask why you chose the P5N-E SLI over the P35-DS3R, that I suggested earlier?

I have the P5N-E SLI motherboard too, and I love it. But I would suggest the P35-DS3R.

The advantage of the P5N-E SLI really...over the P35-DS3R, is the SLI option, and that's about it. While the P35-DS3R will overclock better, and is future ready, for the new Intel CPUs, next year.

ok so then it sounds like the mobo that you suggested is a better fit for a computer now and one that will stay good for time to come!

SnapStream Store: HDTV Tuner Cards (ATSC)

I'd recommend the HVR 1600 or one of the fusions. Look each one up based on your needs. I don't know if those will work with FIOS as they only accept over-the-air and analog signals. Don't think it will..
