Okay. Um... This is what I think might be good. BUT I am not sure what PSU I will need if someone could help with that it would be really appreciated. Do I need any thing else? Will everything work good (I'm really not sure what Optical drive to choose)?

I was planning on just using the HD4000. Do you think I should get a GPU? How much would I spending on an average one?
(BTW thanks for the quick reply! :))

I would get a corsair 430watt, its a really nice PSU with quality components. The integrated graphics is plenty for normal video watching, browsing, youtube, etc.. Only get a discrete gpu if you plan on gaming or video/photo editing.

What gpu did you go with? and it would probably work, but theirs a good chance it will break sleep. I would go with this instead http://www.amazon.com/dp/product/B0057FRTPW/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&tag=tonymacx86com-20.

Is there no blu ray read DVD write optical drives I could use?

I'm currently using this one in my HTPC:

LG Electronics Blu-ray Disc Combo Internal SATA 12X Lightscribe with 3D Play Back, Model CH12LS28.

Haven't tried to read any bd-r discs but so far has played comercial Blu-ray Discs. Hope this helps.

No problems with sleep breaking?
