Your proposed build will let you play DVD/AVI files.

Couple things
for a HTPC, might wanna go with the 1TB WD Green drive.

As for motherboard/cpu/graphics

motherboard even comes with wifi.
or if you wanna stay with Intel:

performance is slightly worse, and slightly more expensive.

the IGP and CPU will offer much better performance, letting you play blu-ray/HD content over the Atom and Geforce 6200

and just better performing ram worth the few bucks more:

I'd go for something more powerful than the Atom. I have one, and it stutters on 480p video from Hulu.com.

I don't know about that mobo, it doesn't have a PCI slot for extended graphics...

The IGP is good enough until something else that requires higher system resources than Blue-Ray comes out.

Another option would be to go with the Jetway JNC81-LF for about $50 more. It comes with the 780G (HD3200), and has an HDMI port - if you need that.

NewEgg has G.Skill DDR2 800 memory with free shipping for $2 more than your list...
