Originally built this to be a minecraft server, but have since repurposed it to boot into steam big picture mode hooked up to a TV.

A cheap video card an an HDD is what I would have done, but either way it's a decent HTPC.

Yep, next step is adding a video card. For HDD storage I'm thinking something like a drobo though.

First of all, congratulations on a lovely build. Well done with cable management c:

For a Minecraft server build I personally would have gone for an AMD FX-8350 CPU as it has four times as many threads and a higher clock speed than the i3-2120, and should technically perform better - however for a 65 watt CPU the i3-2120 really does pack a punch.

How very inventive using the side panel as a mouse mat as well. +1 :v
