Other Components and Comments:
Finally done building this thing. HDCP kicked my butt a few times but I won in the end. I`m happy to say that it plays blu rays, HD mkv files, dvds, and surfs the net just fine. Im also very happy that the case doesn`t look anything like a computer (Untill you read the text on it) and the whole rig is not very heavy at all (hand made shelf, don`t want to trust it too much). The SSD I have in it give me a fantastic 20 second boot time! Which is fast enough that it takes almost as long to turn on the tv, stereo, and switch to hdmi 2. I have a terbyte western digital green drive that I took out of an external drive i had hooked up to the old xbox (for movie storage). overall everything is running great and I`m very happy with this build. Will post pictures and more info later :)

Re-submitted because the first time I guess I did SOMETHING wrong.

There's always a work around ;)
