Small Form Factor Entertainment Systems?

Is anyone running their home entertainment system off a small form factor PC deal? I'm thinking about putting one together, it would run as a DVD player, music player, and would also run emulators and stuff so I can play street fighter II all day long on my TV.

When I say small form factor, I mean something like (but not necessarily this particular model) this :

It would have a TV out, and be controllable via a remote control. I wouldn't mind the ability to have a RAID mirror inside it too, which I've seen on some SFF systems.

So is anyone doing this already? Does it work well, or was it a pain in the ass. Did you end up throwing it out and buying a regular DVD player?
