Hmm, do you really this much power for what you intend to do with it? I have an Acer REVO (intel Atom with Nvidia ION chipset) and it is perfect for surfing the net, checking emails, watching 1080p movies, etc. Since almost everything is hardware accelerated nowadays, I don't really see the point in getting a fairly decent CPU for an HTPC. The whole thing also doesn't generate any heat and has a small footprint (I think I paid $300 for it ~1.5 years back).
