Gonna be my steamer (steam streamer) opinions WANTED

Hey there, I'm pretty exited for steamOS and the steam controller so I figured I'd think of a quick budget build for Black Friday. I'd appreciate any input and advice. I have my powerful computer for streaming so no need for nice graphics. Although I do think i'll be able to get away with many 2d games with this htpc independently, which is where I spend a lot of time anyway. I already have the psu from a diff build, and the motherboard/ apu combo is 95$ at microcenter. Only 240$ before black Friday so i'm hoping to spend under 200$ total. thanks.
