True enough, simple modification. Get a 4-core A8 or A6. Less money, still decent power.

I've built three i-3 units (2 are HTPCs) in recent months all powered by the Seasonic 360G - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817151117 It's a rock solid PSU and pretty much all the power you need for the described uses.

Hey OP,

I know you wanted a higher quality PSU, but this is at least an 80+ bronze, after rebate it's $24.99 w/free shipping.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139026&nm_mc=AFC-C8Junction&cm_mmc=AFC-C8Junction-_-na-_-na-_-na&cm_sp=&AID=10446076&PID=3938566&SID=

Microcenter actually has it for cheaper, at $19.99 after rebate, but I don't think shipping is free.

Also, I agree with the people above. Going with an A-8 or A-10 would be much more powerful for the same cash.
ADHD's build was solid for the price.
