Windows 7: Would this be a good Home Theatre gaming computer?

dunno, that case includes a power supply but I'm usually wary of PSU included in cases...

Also, unless you really really really need 16 GB of ram, take only 8 as that's still overkill for a HTPC and console-like gaming rig. And again, you don't need any heatsink on that ram (naked ram should be cheaper), and heatsinks may be annoying in tight quarters like that case.

Yeah I couldn't make up my mind on which colour I liked better. I do like the samsung low profile RAM, but it's currently out of stock in newegg.ca

no, not low profile, i mean fully naked, like this.
It's not that much cheaper though.

Is what I was referring to. It's low profile, fully naked, very overclockable, and 98% of reviewers gave it 5/5 eggs.

it's now in stock.
Although I doubt you want to overclock ram in a HTPC, and more than 1600 MHz it's more or less useless even for a normal rig if you use a socket 1155 CPU.
