Selecting components for HTPC

I have finally started to move my Windows 7 computer to Windows 10. I previously bought the following components:

- SilverStone Technology Home Theater Computer Case (HTPC)with Faux Aluminum design for ATX / Micro-ATX Motherboards GD09B

- Power supply
- Asus ATI Radeon HD6450 Silence 1 GB DDR3 VGA/DVI/HDMI Low Profile PCI-Express Video Card

I have a SSD and hard drive I would use from current HT computer

I would need motherboard, processor, memory, operating system (windows 10).

Anyone have recommendations for these? It's a bit overwhelming just doing a search.

This computer will be used for running Kodi for DVDs and MKVs, audio from my unraid server. I use HD Homerun Prime and will likely use Emby and Kodi (or at least that's my plan, without having done this. Still using WMC.) I don't think I need 4K, although my TV is 4K. Everything goes through a Marantz receiver. I use FireTV and have a bluray player, which also go through the Marantz.

Thanks for any suggestions.
