Budget Home Theater PC Build Wishlist 2015

I am currently in the process of remodeling the basement.  I am going to turn it into a half the gym/half home theater type of room.  I am going to build a media PC for watching movies, watching YouTube, surfing the web, and that sort of thing.  So this is my budget home theater PC build wishlist.
