new HTPC build; thoughts?

I'd like to build an HTPC, and have come up with the pieces here: http://pcpartpicker.com/user/eiknarf/saved/#savedbuild_649999

hoping to get some thoughts on it... am I missing anything crucial? are there places I can cut back? alternatives you'd suggest?

Ultimately, I want to be able to game on it, thus the more advanced CPU... plan to add a gpu in a few months, but would like to get it up and running for media (local and streaming 1080p video, sports (sunday ticket/mlb) and audio).

any thoughts would be greatly appreciated!
