Hi, beloved community.
I need some assistance with my current project.
I'm moving to a new apartment with my girlfriend in a month exactly. I've been wanting to do this for quite some time now -- building a mediacenter with possibility to play console games!
I've been collecting parts by my own computers (items with $0 stated) and buying my friends old components when they are upgrading. The build is the below:
|CPU||Intel Core i5-3570K 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor||$130.00|
|CPU Cooler||Noctua NH-L9i 57.5 CFM CPU Cooler||$40.00|
|Motherboard||Foxconn H61S Mini ITX LGA1155 Motherboard||$49.99 @ Amazon|
|Memory||Kingston Predator Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1866 Memory||$0.00|
|Storage||A-Data Premier Pro SP600 64GB 2.5" Solid State Drive||$40.00|
|Video Card||Gigabyte GeForce GTX 660 2GB Video Card||$85.00|
|Case||Cooler Master Elite 130 Mini ITX Tower Case||$49.99 @ Amazon|
|Power Supply||Corsair CX 750W 80+ Bronze Certified Semi-Modular ATX Power Supply||$0.00|
|Optical Drive||Samsung SH-224DB/RSBS DVD/CD Writer||$0.00|
|Operating System||Microsoft Windows 8.1 Pro (OEM) (64-bit)||$0.00|
|Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available||$394.98|

What I'm wondering is the following:
- What's the easiest way to play XBOX / PS games over my mediacenter? Do I need to purchase controllers connected with USB?
- Will my build be enough for the stated usage?
- Is there anything you can see that I need to change?
Thank you deeply for your assistance.
