Emulation Station - Need your opinion & help

Dear PCPartPickers

Since I've already received plenty of good opinions and help for past builds, I am here again. My plan is to build an emulation station, that I connect to my TV. It should also be able to stream movies and series from my NAS or Netflix / Browser.

Basically it is used as emulation station, little steam gaming and streaming / mediacenter.

As for PSU I'm really not sure so far, what to pick. Do you have any suggestions or anything I should change / consider?

Please note that I'm aware, that I might need to update BIOS on the mainboard, as it currently is not supporting Kaby Lake. However it is more or less the best deal I can get my hands on here in Switzerland - anything else is way more overpriced or does not come with the features I want it to come.

Thanks for any help in advance!

Thanks a lot for your feedback.

Yeah, I just compared the two cases and it's not that much bigger, I somehow expected it to be a lot bigger... not sure why

Also I already got the Samsung SSD on a very good deal, thus I won't be moving to any other ssd

If I were to build in a Silverstone - GD09B HTPC Case, which ATX Mainboard would you recommend. I don't need a WiFi Adapter, since I'll be using ETHERNET only.

Thanks a bunch!
