Building a new MythTV/mpd box

I'm putting together a new box that will be my MythTV (backend and frontend) and mpd server. I'm trying to do it relatively cheaply -- I think I can get the following list together for a bit under $400. Here's what I'm thinking about, any advice? It'll be running Debian GNU/Linux. The components that are conspicuously missing (hard drive, screen, dvd burner) are things that I already have.

  • Shuttle SD30G2
    • Intel GMA950 video
    • Realtek ALC888 audio
    • Marvell 88E8001 gigabit ethernet
  • Intel Celeron D 3.33GHz CPU
  • PCHDTV 5500 tuner card
  • 2GB RAM
  • Streamzap remote
