The video is built into the motherboard and I plan to reuse a hard drive I already have. I'm hoping to get away with just using a Media Center remote control or a smaller bluetooth keyboard once things are setup. Also, I will leave open the option of adding a full-size DVD/Bluray drive in the future.
These parts are powerful enough to do everything I need.
In the next part, I'll assemble the parts and load the OS to test out the components.
