Why would you need a 750 watt PSU for a HTPC?

Had it and my HD6870 laying around doing nothing, so i bought the rest of a cheap little build and figured i'd slap it all together in a little easy to move case.
Maybe, just maybe if i took out the blu-ray drive and cut half the cables off the PSU i could make it all fit, but goddamn.

Think i might just get a bigger case. As a bonus i'd be able to fit a second HDD in it and i could RAID them up.

At leas the build itself works pretty good. Me and my mate played rust for a couple of hours last night, couldn't find each other for shit. The CPU temps are very odd, though. Appear to flicker around randomly, up to around 80 degrees in gaming. Considering the size of the pathetic heatsink that's actually pretty good.

All in all, HTPCs not even once. If you insist, for the love of god use a modular PSU and a 2.5" drive.
