I was going to use an old computer I had laying around but I'm afraid it might give trouble so I through together this cheap build. I use Boxee and all it has to do is play Blu Ray and and all the movies in my library to my Sony Bravia which is 720p. Will this low power rig work?

cpu-http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103698
memory-http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820211066
Blu-ray drive-http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16827106292

Still working on the case. Can't decide on a case.

what about a Power supply, video card?

that would work for a PSU.

that would be great for a basic video card that would say quiet and cool.
I've got several power supplies lying around that will run this low power rig. The onboard HD 4200 should be more than enough for HD at 720p.

Just remember that a cheap PSU can kill stuff. Just so you know.

I guess 4200 will work, but you would be much better off with an actual video card.
You can use that at first and get a GPU if you decide later.

If you have a MicroCenter near you, get a Athlon II X2 + 785G mobo for $70-90.
