Default El Cheapo HTPC

I've got a small HTPC project in mind... to play movies, stream videos and play snes/playstation emulation on a 42'' tv.

I've got some spare pieces, 2gb of generic ddr2 RAM, a geforce 8600GT, dvd drives, HDDs.

I just need mATX case and motherboard, PSU and processor. My goal is to make it cheap and silent.

Here's what i planned :
Some normal case with a generic PSU : http://ncix.com/products/index.php?sku=24586
AMD Athlon 64 X2 5200
Gigabyte mATX case http://ncix.com/products/index.php?sku=44632

If i get a shipping deal, this should cost me about 180$.

Any comments?
