First a caveat, I have only read through the AG tutorials and put together 
my own modified parts list. I have no other AG experience.

I just thought I'd mention I have a system with an ASUS A7M266-D motherboard 
and I have been pleased with its stability. I haven't tested the overheating 
protection, but it is still nice to have on an Athlon system for once.

I think it will be interesting to try one of Matrox's Parhelia graphics 
boards when they come out after June 30th. The output options look very 
flexible, but I wonder why they only have triple output for rgb and not dvi.

You may want to look at projectors other than the Epson 710c because it 
looks like it might be a discontinued model.
