Gigabyte Brix looks like a winner
Oh yes, even the new atoms (the NUC 2820) are more than fast enough for XBMC-- they are much faster than the old atom in your zotac and downright ridiculously faster than the piddling SoC in the rpi. You can think of the new atoms as being roughly equivalent to mobile core2duos from 2009ish.

The haswell celeron in the chromebox is much faster than that. It has enough power to transcode video or run other servers in the background. The chromebox is an outstanding value.

People tend to overbuy on their HTPCs. You don't need an i3.
