So, I'm curious how a system like this would perform. I don't plan on building it, so don't worry about telling me not to. I'm thinking it might be able to make a decent HTPC if the owner had a NAS already set up. Obviously gaming wouldn't really be an option on this system, though. This was the cheapest thing I could come up with. Also, does anyone think a Raspberry Pi would perform better, or no? I'd love to hear (read) what you guys have to say.

Again, not planning on building it - just curious about it.
