    htpc advice - which to choose

    hi mate these are my final build options, which would you choose?

    Hi all,
    I'm after a new htpc - I currently own an acer revo 3600.

    I was thinking of three different options,

    #1
    Asrock e350 zacate
    4gb ddr3 kingston value ram
    30gb kingston ssd
    mini itx case (what would be a good option? Antec isk-150?)
    possibly ati 6450/ nvidia gt430
    asus xonar dg

    #2
    intel e2140 (already own)
    asrock g41m mobo
    4gb ddr3 kingston value ram
    30gb kingston ssd
    microatx case (what would be a good option?)
    ati 6450/ nvidia gt430
    asus xonar dg

    #3
    amd llano 3650
    llano mobo probably asrock
    4gb ddr3 kingston value ram
    30gb kingston ssd
    microatx case

    my requirements are:
    1080p playback
    3d 1080p playback
    ability to handle 40-50gb blu ray files
    xbmc (windows or linux)
    low power consumption

    Thanks.
