Windows 7: Would this be a decent gaming/htpc unit? (Gigabyte Brix with Nvidia)

Would this be a decent gaming/htpc unit? (Gigabyte Brix with Nvidia)

Gigabyte GB-BXi5G-760:
Intel i5-4200H
59.6 x 128 x 115.4 mm (2.3 x 5 x 4.5")

I think I can FINALLY build my super compact gaming system. and with a msata SSD and a 2tb 2.5" drive it will function as a great HTPC too!

Any thoughts or reservations about this plan?

Looks good I've often been curious about compact pcs as I rarely see them in my area. I would love to see some picture when you have finished it

If you are interested in this form factor, google Alienware Alpha. I'm not a huge Alienware fan, but I think they've got this one right. Should be out in Oct/Nov. Geared towards gaming but would make an excellent HTPC.

I have always liked the idea of a small little power box!

Suggest me a decent nVidia graphics card
I have a desktop with Intel i5 2nd generation processor. But I have a weak graphics card called ATI Radeon HD 6250 which I discovered that it isn't great for gaming.

Would this dv6000 laptop make a decent htpc?
Have no other use for it so figured I'd just use as a htpc til I could make a good one. How would it work as a htpc you think? No hdmi/dvi ports on it, but meh. Would it play HD stuff ok or no since it'd be running off VGA to a 40" lcd?
