Cheap steam machine or HTPC

So basically I'm moving and I wanna get a computer for my living room. I have a few parts (cx 750m, core v21, wifi adapter, corsair h100i gtx, and a fan controller) but I was wondering if I should just go for a NUC since those are relatively cheap.

My laptop does in home streaming pretty well, so I figure that a NUC will do it pretty well.

If someone could make me a parts list either using these parts or with an NUC, that'd be awesome.

You weren't very exact on what your planning to do but this will do a variety of things. Add your WiFi adaptor.
