I'd be interested in your results when you actually test this. I'm not too familiar with XBMC Live but (and correct me if I'm wrong) I believe it runs on Linux. I've heard that NVIDIA plans on offering 0 Linux drivers for the ION 2 which mean you'll be using Intel's on-chip graphics and you may as well buy an ION2-less motherboard to save yourself money.
But please, when you get results, let us know if it is smoother on XBMC Live vs Win 7. If it is, that would really change my mind about some things.
