Looks good. I'd say for video cards, just get what ever is cheaper. Though, last I checked, nVidia didn't do HDMI audio out (but the last models I was checking on that was the 9800s I think..so they may have included that now), so if you want to do that, get the ATI. Either will be fine.

You really don't need anything over 500W for that setup.
Here's a great deal on a modular PSU: OCZ ModXStream Pro OCZ500MXSP 500W
He's right Seti. It won't be a screaming rig; just a very high quality HTPC. You shouldn't need more than 500W. I've been reading reviews all day on the Corsair 550VX 550W non modular PSU and this OCZ that AR has linked. I'm getting the OCZ because a few tests on sites confirmed a small 12V droop than the Corsair (surprised me!) but other than that they are almost identical..and the modular is cheaper. BTW I was comparing to see which I should throw in my parents rig. I'm glad the OCZ faired well from what I read because my parents' rig needs a modular PSU badly in their stuffed Raidmax Sagitta case. Anywho, I think you'd like it, but if you want it ORDER IT TONIGHT
the rebate ends TODAY! So I'll be ordering well before midnight...hopefully here in just a bit.
