No doubt.  I honestly forgot about the thread - thanks for keeping it alive SoltoN.

On a side note, I just ordered a Nexus One - should be here very soon.  The Nokia E71 is starting to reboot randomly when trying to receive calls.

Just snagged a Zotac Zbox HD-ID11, 2GB DDR2 800 and a Visiontek Candyboard for my htpc setup. I'll post how it all works out.

Just got a Sapphire 6870, with HDMI cable included, from Newegg for $241. My 4870x2 was an aged architecture that wasn't working with AMD's new drivers well, and was crashing.  (A common problem.) Didn't have time for that, though it works OK with the old 9 level of drivers.
