I'm building my first htpc. I'll be using it as a DVR, bluray player, play ripped 1080p movies with lossless audio, playing retro games, and basic ones like Sim City or Civ. I was using a Mac mini with XBMC. Here's pretty much what I got.

CPU: Intel i3 3225
Motherboard: ASRock H77M
ODD: Liteon bluray player
SSD: Sandisk 128GB
HDD: 3TB external
Power supply: Seasonic 380w something
Ram: G Skill 4GB 1600 x2
Tuner: Hauppauge 2250
Case: nMediaPC 1000B
Wireless card, IR receiver, Windows 7

I wanted to get an AMD A10, but heard they run hot as hell.

What do you guys think, would this be good? I think the cost for everything was like $750 at Newegg.
