Helping travis with his new home network designing

ok so first i'm going to rewire/fish CAT-6 cable everywhere in my house... all from a box bought at lowes or HD...

 

Looking to build a media center cabinet with a glass door on the front to house a slide out/pivoting rack mount solution which is to be the heart and soul of my network/ media center. 

rack system guts seen at link below... anyone seen one like this for a better price?

on the bottom of this rack system i plan on slotting a 2U Rackmount chassis for 2 x Mini-ITX system which will be my "Boris Box" and my NAS...

shell for the above at link below...

a good network backbone switch...

TP-LINK TL-SG1024DE 24-Port Gigabit Easy Smart Switch with 24 10/100/1000 Mbps

24 ports because i wanna do home automation and stuff so the extra ports will come in handy down the road....

 

HTPC/steam box... case only at this point... everything else i am yet to work out...

Home audio receiver,  going to put speakers in the walls and ceiling for a spot on clean install.

and of course the cable box and an ultimate harmony remote from Logitech

 

I am spacing everything so that when the price of 70" 4K TV's come down ill be able to just buy one with a wall mount and chuck it on the wall...

 

power strip, rackmount...

 

Anything that im missing?
