Since it is an Openelec build wouldnt it be necessary to add a remote (with receiver) in the cost?

I added some options that I've built in the other thread here: http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid...pid1430909 that might cover some of the above (except the dirt-cheap part). If you don't need 3D there are cheaper options, sure but eskro's builds do it all.

ARTIC MC001 is pricey, $459

OUCH!!
and no HD-Audio Bitstreaming in OpenELEC with a HD5430 GPU :/
oh and, does Blu-ray 3D but without MVC decode acceleration on HD5430 GPU :/

there's enough remote/keyboard suggestions in my HTPC guide as it is.
no need to add more here as many people already have remotes here and there...

Arctic mc001 was great deal at the price of 99$ ...(no dvd, ram, hd)..

At the price of 459 .... No way... :)

Well, I cannot find shop in Europe that sells ZOTAC D2700ITXS-A-E. In fact I didn't find any motherboard with D2700 and Nvidia sold in Europe. The closest MB is the Zotac D2550ITXS-A-E. It has less powerfull processor I'm afraid this won't fit into ANTEC ISK 110 case.
Any advice which Mobo to go for (from somebody from Europe) ?

The D2700 processor was discontinued/end-of-life by Intel (ref: http://ark.intel.com/products/59683) so the D2550 is actually newer. You won't notice a difference in performance for OpenELEC. The case really doesn't matter. Find a mini-ITX case that suits your taste. You don't need much PSU, even as low as 60W will do. Since you are in Europe, you might want to look at these cases:
