Currently I have these spare parts on hand:
Harddrive: Crucial M4 64GB http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820148441
Memory: CORSAIR Vengeance 4GB http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820233195
Motherboard: ASRock Z77E-ITX http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157312

I'm looking to purchase these parts:
Case: Wesena ITX6 http://www.shop.perfecthometheater.com/HTPC-ITX6-Black-Mini-HTPC-aluminum-chassis-HTPC-ITX6-B.htm
CPU: i3-2125 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115093
Power Supply: picoPSU-150-XT + 150W Adapter Power Kit http://www.mini-box.com/picoPSU-150-XT-150W-Adapter-Power-Kit

Will this be strong enough to stream BluRay x264 content via LAN? If not, does anyone have suggestions as to what low profile GPU will work with this setup? It'll be on Windows/Linux+XBMS streaming from my FreeNAS server.

$10 paypal gift to whoever can answer this question before I order, and it works as intended.

You should have no streaming issues with that at all if you're connecting to the LAN via a hard wired connection.
