You don't want to keep swapping out components like that anyway. It's too risky if something expensive goes. Like that 560 for example. Can you readily replace that at any point in time if it dies tomorrow?
I like to play FPS/RTS on my main rig in my room. I would spend 95% of my "computing" time on my main rig.

Whenever I feel like driving my Lotus Elise over a median into a pile of oncoming cars, I go to my HTPC on my 60inch TV with a PS3 controller in my living room. It's an E2180 with a 5770 BTW.

I just don't get the same effect when I do that on my 27inch LCD on my main rig.

Whatever works.

I jelly. That intel is about as fast as my x4 640 with a fraction of its power usage. And a CPU+Motherboard combo can be had for ~225 euros here so it's worth it in my opinion. Let's see what AMD has to say to this. However, I hate Intel for chopping VT from it.

Exactly, now lets go compare an i7 hexa core system to a dual core Athlon II. Flap Flap Flap.
Well guys, the numbers speak for themselves, the Intel solution costs more and works much better.

Gee, who'da thunk it.

People who complain about price and try to argue that the are too completely different platforms are really just making excuses. The 210T and the zacate are both low power, ITX platforms with on die graphics solutions. They are meant to fill similar kinds of systems and to compete in very similar markets. The fact that the intel product both consumes less power and has greater performance makes it a better product. Sure its signifcantly more expensive, but it is also superior in every single way. Comparing zacate to the i3 is a fair comparison.

ASRock E350M1/USB3 + AMD E-350: $130

ASUS P8H61- Mini-ITX + Intel Core i3 2100T: $220
$90 more for 4x the performance? is huge?

Maybe not huge in terms of price vs. performance, but you can buy the brazos APU + motherboard for less than the i3-2100 CPU alone. To me, that is not a small matter given the market that the brazos is trying to appeal to.

It's a matter of what you're going to be doing with it. Sure, we can go with the dual core/ATI 5750 for light gaming. Or, we can go with a Sempron and a fanless 5450 for media and bluray. HTPC is carrying a broader and broader definition each time a new manufacturing process is released. This is where the clash is coming from. If you want a media PC, go E-350, if you want light-medium gaming, go 2100T. I'd personally prefer a media based PC with ultra low wattage/cost, but that's just that: personal preference.

This is actually true, with Zacate, the Silverstone Nightjar 400w PSU and that nice ASUS motherboard, using an SSD you could have a rig where quite literally the only sound it makes is when you play movies on its BluRay player.

To be fair, that $90 could upgrade you to a decent SSD which would make the Zacate Platform feel far faster for HTPC uses.

What I find most hilarious, is that for a platform that is primarily used to view things. Image quality has barely been a concern.
