I bought the PCIe version as well. Right now it is sitting unopened across the room. I still need to get other parts, I just thought the deal was too good to pass up. I am having the most trouble deciding on a case, and how much I am willing to spend on that part. I need to keep this under the cost of buying a TiVo Roamio Pro with lifetime service. Not to difficult, but I am trying to get everything for as little as possible (stingy).
