I've finished my home theater and now I'd like to add a PC to it. I'd like to mainly use it for gaming but if it will provide a better blu-ray experience then that would be considered also. My budget is $800 - $1000. In my shopping cart this is all coming in under the $1000 mark.

Thermaltake PSUs are not the most reliable. Also on a $800 or less budget I'd drop the SSD entirely and invest more in the video card. Also get a decent case. The Antec 100 is good but I wouldn't go cheaper than that.

Here is what I would suggest:
