Well I like the pc. Vrey nice work you have done. I am modding a pc into a htpc as well and it is a fun project. Two things I would sugest. 1. Clean up the wires (I know you alredy mentioned that) but im just emphasising how well a neat case looks. 2. Get a cheepo tv tuner card just in case you want to capture some tv feeds or something to complete the htpc feel and you have the pci slots to spare so it should not be a problem.
