Hi everyone ! Here are my details for a new HTPC build :
APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: comming months
BUDGET RANGE: around 400 euros
SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: Playing Music + Videos (HD), Playing Music Online (radios,spotify..), Playing DVDs/Blurays, Browsing Internet, Possibly minor gaming.

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: I want to obtain an HTPC with these basic functions, as simple and silent as possible. Good looking is also an important parameter !! I am no PC expert (first complete Pc mounting for me !) so any comments are more than welcome. For ex, I have no idea if the PSU I am picking is as silent as I would want it to be.
Here's a video detailing (a bit) your selected case. It doesn't look like it accepts a standard power supply. In the video, it looks like the power supply is just a small PCB attached to the motherboard case (about 17 seconds into the video).
Secondly, it looks like that case will only accept slim-line optical drives, so your selected Blu-Ray drive wouldn't work.
