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.

i7 4790K @ 4.8GHz w/EK Supremacy Evo
MSI z97 Gaming 5
2x 8GB Gskill Sniper 2133 @ 2400MHz
EVGA GTX 280 (SC?)
OCZ Gamer Xtreme 600W PSU
