Custom built HTPC for sale

For sale is a like new (4 months old) pc built and set up as a home theater pc, asking for $520 and shipping. (Paypal/Google Wallet)
Runs a Haswell Intel i3 CPU that is overkill for its purpose and is running windows 8, but is designed to be running XBMC (or Plex) for movies and TV.
I built this to "Cut the cable" and quit paying cable/satellite.
It is very small, (measuring 9.5"w x 10"d x 4"h) and quiet (upgraded cpu and case fan for low noise)
Has WiFi, Bluetooth, Dual Ethernet, HDMI, WiDi, DVI, and displayport for (4k viewing).

Case
Wesena, ITX7-B (Black) - 100% Aluminum, Mini HTPC chassis
Main Parts
MSI Z87I LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Mini ITX Intel Motherboard with Military Class Component, WiFi+BT, WiDi, 4K UHD
Intel Core i3-4130 Haswell Dual-Core 3.4GHz LGA 1150 54W Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 4400 BX80646I34130
Crucial Ballistix Tactical 4GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Low Profile Desktop Memory Model BLT4G3D1608ET3LX0
OCZ Agility 4 AGT4-25SAT3-64G 2.5" 64GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
Cooling
Noctua NF-R8 PWM 80mm Case Fan
Dynatron T459 Low Profile Active Copper LGA1156 Intel Core i3/i5/i7 CPU Cooler
Power
8 Amp 12 Volt Ac Power Adapter with 3 Prong Plug with 5 Mm Dc Output Jack, 3224-12V
Mini-Box picoPSU-160-XT High Power 24 Pin Mini-ITX Power Supply (160 watts)
Accessories
NZXT IU01 Case Accessory (internal to give more USB and better power distribution)
Mele F10-PRO 2.4G Wireless Keyboard 2 in 1 Intelligent Voice with IR Remote Control for PC TV Media Player (perfect wireless keyboard/mouse/remote solution)
WESENA IR RECEIVER (allows use of any IR Media remote, is internal for a cleaner look, it is not used in my setup, but if you don't like the included remote it allows for an alternative)

It is currently running Windows 8 to support XBMC, Steam Home Streaming, as well as some emulators.
i will do a fresh install before shipping, or i will install Openelec (runs it fantastically) for a more appliance feel.

*The case has the ability to add a slot load Blu-ray or DVD drive, i just never got around to it.

Nice set up. I've been looking in to buying an HTPC, but it appears it's more expensive to buy a pre-assembled one than making your own.

You can build cheaper, this one was built with 4k in mind, so its kind of over kill.
