I wanted a quiet new Haswell build that would allow me to run XBMC and play movies with ample post-processing power, and do some light emu-gaming (NES/SNES/Genesis/N64/Playstation).
The build took slightly longer than expected because of the size of the case -- cabling was a bit of a challenge, as was getting the motherboard in. The stock cooler fit in with plenty of room.
The 128 GB SSD is a bit overkill, but it was cheaper than the 64 GB I was originally going to buy. The games don't take up much room, and movies and tv shows stream off my NAS or the internet.
I priced out an A10 build, and it would have cost me around the same. I went with Intel because it'll run cooler.
Prices include shipping and taxes.
