Good idea with the video board, I removed all of the black plastic spacers when I did mine.

Snap - I did to and then it made it more difficult to line the pins up when putting the video board into the main board.

Exxos - while you have the soldering iron out might want to desolder the XTAL and put in a socket so you can replace with other XTALs
