Good things in small packages? HTPC build < $312

Hi all! Big thanks for any and all thoughts you might have on this build. I'm looking for an always-on HTPC, running Plex, perhaps some very light gaming, but otherwise basic media consumption (music/movies). I have a Bluetooth keyboard and mouse that I plan to use, along with some old laptop HDDs I planned to cannibalize. The CPU has a built-in GPU, which should suffice even for 1080p movie display. Is there anything I'm overlooking? Is this a decent bang for ~$300 bucks?

Thanks a ton!
