My idea is to make HTPC that would look like CIP Device on 24 season 7 TV Series. I believe that the NVIDIA Ion is the best board for this project for its small size and HTPC capability.

Here are the suggested parts: Other brand will do.

Antec Multimedia Station Elite - $75
- For IR Receiver, Remote Control
- Display Visual Information
- Remotes allow user to experience Media Center with ease
- to look like on CIP Device on 24 TV Series

Thermalright HR-07 Dou for Memory - $35
- Passive heatsink for memory
- to look like on CIP Device on 24 TV Series

Thermalright HR-09 Mosfet Cooler -
- passive cooling for PSU Mosfets Chips

thermalright 8800GT PWN-Heat sink -
- heatsink for chips

- Pico PSU 90watts approx $56 (if onboard PSU is not available on the motherboard)

Optional:
- Slim Slot loading ODD (laptop) (DVD, Blueray, HD DVD) on the bottom part of the case
