I could probably knock it down a bit if necessary... I know it's going to be a HTPC, but I dont know if you want a HTPC Case or not. Some might say the motherboard is slightly... overkill. But it's bang up to date, so you could upgrade at a later date if you wanted to. The fact that it's an ATX motherboard drove up the price of the HTPC case.. but as I said, if you dont want/need a HTPC case then it can come down be ~$20-30 dollars.
You might want someone to check over that before you bought it.. i would hate for it not to work :P
