My future HTPC

Hi guys, I'd like to introduce you my project about an HTPC for my bedroom.

I'm planning to recycle something from my actual Pc (the motherboard) and an old HD 6670 that nobody is using right now. This is going to be the rig:

CPU Intel Celeron G460
Motherboard ASRock Fatal1ty P67 Performance (from my actual PC)
RAM the cheapest 2 GB I can find
VGA Asus HD 6670
PSU Corsair CX430m
CPU Cooler Noctua NH-L9i (because silent is gooooood)
HDD Samsung Spinpoint F3 (from my actual PC)

For the case Luca Rocchi showed me the Nox Media HD which sound pretty nice for what I need.

Everything will be completed with a FullHD 40" screen on the wall, and a wireless keyboard with integrated trackpad, and I'm thinking about a Bluray reader.

What do you think about it? Any suggestion?

What if you sell the Fatality board and you buy a smaller board instead, that in the end you can use a smaller case?

Yeah that's what I thought too, that the Fatal1ty is a bit oversized

Right, but I understand the situation of Nate.
I have here too a old P67 and like all P67 is "unsaleable" in 2013

I would have to sell it at a very low price, I might not even be able to sell it at all. I don't need a very small HTPC, so I prefer to recycle my Fatal1ty.

Sure, I would also recycle it if the money you get for the board is not worth the effort.
