Default Gaming HTPC

So thinking about building a gaming HTPC but I don't know too much about HTPCs, never even seen one before. I mostly just want to be able to play DVDs, Blu-Rays, play games, and some other things. Thinking about using an i5 750, 4 GBs ram, and a 1TB harddrive (won't be burning Blu-Rays or anything). No idea about the motherboard and I'm not set on intel either. No idea about HTPC cases either.

I heard the newer ATI cards can bitstream Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD over HDMI. Might go for a 5870 or something so I can be sure to play the newer games at 1080p.

And are newer wireless keyboards and mice any good for gaming? Last time I tried to game with wireless stuff it never worked well but that was years ago. Any input would be awesome.
