If this is expensive, I may wait to do this but I would like to send video and music to my HOME entertainment system (from my computer).

Do I just need to pick a media center extender? Is it that simple?

With those BestBuy gift certificates (around $400), I could get that "slingcatcher" ???

Edit: OMG Vernong you beat me to it

If he goes i7 though, then the Sunbeam Core Contact will be useless.

I want to resolve this as I was still looking at the Sunbeam CR-CCTF 120mm "Core Contact Freezer" CPU Cooler until I reread this. What cooler should I get with the i7 if this does not work?

One of these two. - LGA1366, CPU Fans & Heatsinks, Fans & Heatsinks, Computer Hardware

The Noctua is the better cooler out of the 2, which is probably why its sold out.

You could also ask Nosboost or some one else with i7 already. You will probably have to find an aftermarket cooler on some site other then newegg though.

I am upgrading to the Antec 1200 because I don't want space to be an issue - especially if I decide to add some more things later on.

I need a good PSU that can handle everything. I currently picked a Corsair 750W but I am concerned this may not work. I don't want to be cheap about the power.

I am buying the Intel Core i7 920 Nehalem 2.66GHz 4 x 256KB L2 Cache 8MB L3 Cache LGA 1366 with the EVGA 132-BL-E758-A1 LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX Intel Motherboard.
