The onboard Abit sound is supose to be GREAT, so I'll go for that, if I don't like it, I'll buy a ZS.

Have you considered a Video Capture Card?

Having the ability to record TV programs to your harddrive for later viewing is awesome. Then you can burn your favorite episodes to DVD.

Also... Have you considered a Remote. Like ATI's remote wonder 2?
