Can you recommend a HD media PC build for me?

Hi, I have not been following any hardware since the I5 2500 came out. I am after a build I can keep in a small room and connect to a 32 inch 1080 TV. It doesn't need to be something that can blitz through DX11 games on 'ultra' but something that can run through 1080 res video streams without sweating. I would like atleast 5.1 sound

I am trying to keep cost as low as possible and I have recently seen these AMD APU chips they sound impressive but I don't know too much about them or if I should just go for an older system, I only really need the spec good for HD media playback but these APUs look tempting. Anything and everything you can recommend is welcome
