Planning to build a file server to hold strictly media.

Currently I use iTunes's to stream to my apple tv 2. But I would like to stop running my gaming rig to watch movies and tv shows.

Plan is to jailbreak my ATV2 run XMBC and build a low cost Amahi based media server.

I have the HDD's already so here's what I'm looking at:


CPU
Intel Pentium G2120 3.1GHz Dual-Core Processor $68.56
Motherboard
Asus P8H77-I Mini ITX LGA1155 Motherboard $99.96
Memory
Crucial Ballistix Sport 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory $63.00
Case
Fractal Design Node 304 Mini ITX Tower Case $89.99
Power Supply
Corsair Builder 430W 80 PLUS Bronze Certified ATX12V Power Supply $44.99

Total: $366.50

I also have a PS3 and XBOX 360 so I'm not sure if the jailbreak is the easiest route.

Thoughts?

Thanks for your input.
