Also (sry for double post), you'll need PSU. That case comes with.. 60W PSU? No good. You need at least 300W to be safe

He doesn't need one. The IGP on the Sandy Bridges are more than adequate to play back HD.

That CPU is a 65W CPU. When you put everything together, I'd say a 200W unit is enough.
