First time trying to build a pc. It will mostly be a HTPC, streaming hulu and netflix. I will use it for sc2 as well and and the occasional mw2 match. Will this be good enough http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814150459? Or would this be worth the extra $35 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127523? Btw, I've got an athlon triple-core processor, and only a 380w psu. I'm also limited on space so it has to be low profile(half height). I'm also open to suggestions other than what I mentioned?
