Good choice of cpu
Ramm looks good to . As cheap as ramm is right now ( seems to be a bit back on the rise though) you could go to 8 giggs but by no means is it required and the 4 giigs you have chossen is good
GREAT hard drive you have chosen in the Sammy
Power supply is a bit on the stout side for your intended use and personally I am not a Roswell fan of any thing . There are some great Antec 320 watt psu that would be more suited with a better track record. This psu is my personnel favorite. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817703034
I have no experience with that case but visually did not see any issues . Look it up on New Egg and check the specs .
Most folks around here like the Crucial M4 or the Samsung 830 for ssd . They have a huge track record around here as opposed to the Plextor. Not sayin the Plex is bad though by no means . I try not to be different than what other folks do in this area in case I need help later people will know my drive because they use it to
Also . Not needed but nice to have the head room would be to bump that up to 128 gig as sale prices right now can get you under a $1 per gig . In fact the M4 is on sale at new egg if you subscribe to there email sales and use the promo codes .
You have the built in Intel 3000 graphics on that cpu so for your intended use it would be better to ditch the vid card and see if you need it later . Most folks get by very well with out discrete video .
I use a Ceton Infinity 4 pci/e tv tuner card and LOVE IT ! It can be a bit tricky to set up but really just about any tuner card is .
You have a kick ass build going here with just a few tweaks to be made . Sure hope you would take some pics and post them in this thread
Have you taken a look at Assassins HTPC guides ? You really should . Really the best info on the net for htpc to be found ..... hands down .
Good luck and post back
