I'm going to use it in HTPC/MediaCenter PC I'm going to build (with Ryzen 2400G or 2200G, don't know which one, yet).

I played movies on it. It handles without problems movies encoded with:

Format : AVC Format/Info : Advanced Video Codec Format/Url : http://developers.videolan.org/x264.html Commercial name : AVC Format profile : High@L4.1 Format settings : CABAC / 4 Ref Frames Format settings, CABAC : Yes Format settings, CABAC : Yes Format settings, ReFrames : 4 Format settings, ReFrames : 4 frames Internet media type : video/H264 Bit rate : 11.0 Mbps Width : 1 920 pixels Height : 816 pixels

It plays youtube 1080p without problems. However, this is older CPU. I would have bought now some Skylake CPU, or wait for AMD Zen and see whether they are worth it. I don't think G3258 is worth it if you don't plan to overclock it. But, this case ain't made for overclocking :-)

Two old HDDs: 1TB and 1.5TB. And one SSD 120GB.

Yep. I had 750 TI, but not a low profile one. This is actually a downgrade from: Fractal Design Node 804, MSI 750 Ti 2GB, Fortron Raider 750.

I use it to work on my own projects and to do school stuff. I haven't got time to play games a long long time, so I don't miss gaming performance. I made it as HTPC, because I just don't like tower cases :-)

If I was going to upgrade it, I would bought some low wattage CPU with passive cooler, or add SilverStone NT06-PRO to current CPU. I wonder about new AMD Zen cores. AMD lacks single core performance, but they have better overall multicore performance, which I will benefit more of.

Also I'm gonna wait for new GPU(s) from NVidia, and probably some passive 930 would be good. Probably, I won't have time to use it either :D
