    Expansion brackets, what would you want?

    Im thinking of setting up a small buisness making motherboard expansion brackets. Not in it to make huge amounts of cash btw, before people start saying 'too specialised' etc. just something i feel like doing

    Any way, wot brackets would be popular? So far im thinking of -

    IrDA (connecting to ur mobile / laptop etc)
    Infrared for remote control (i.e winamp control)
    Coax out / in (for motherboards and soundcards)
    Optical out / in (for motherboards and soundcards)
    TV out maybe? for motherboards with onboard gfx (i.e the NF7-M which has the tv out header afaik)

    Might be able to offer usb / firewire brackets, but it depends on how much i can source the sockets for.

    just wondering if there is anything else i've forgotton, that cud be useful?

    Well if your making them for front bays too, I am looking to buy one to control the fan speeds of my case fans. I have 7 80mm cas fans and theres my CPU too, so basicly I want one to control 8 fans. Could you do these ? If so I would buy one if you could provide it within 2 weeks.
