This system is only for using with XBMC and won't need much storage as it will stream from my other PC.
I don't need an optical drive.
I will probably be running XBMC for windows as I'm more familiar with it and I had some problems setting up wireless streaming using the linux version.

IMO the SATA 6GB/s wont offer any significant performance improvement over SATA3 GB/s for mechanical drives...But USB3.0 is a good addition though...
There is still a gulf between an Atom and even dated dual cores like E2xxx and A64 X2 4xxx and many users of Atom systems have expressed sheer frustration once their needs grow out of net/office so it's your call hehe
