Default Which system for HTPC???

I've got two systems that can be used for an HTPC, pretty much just BD and music playback. The other will be in the workshop and used to run some drives for back up reasons, very light CAD work, and playing some workin' tunes. I'm pretty sure either system is more than adequate for either duty but I thought I'd ask just in case there some advantage that I'm unaware of to use either of the machines in a specific role.

System 1.) Asus P5E-VM HDMI w/E3110
System 2.) Gigabyte MA78LM-S2H w/Athlon II 425

Both systems will have 2GB and I have a passive Sapphire HD4670 that can go in either system.

Q6600 @ 3.83GHz w/ D-Tek Fusion
Asus P5Q-PRO
2x 2GB PC8000 Mushkin Redlines @ 1020MHz w/5-5-5-12 timings
EVGA GTX 280 (SC?)
OCZ Gamer Xtreme 600W PSU
Cooler Master Cosmos on water
