Thinking of building an HTPC and as always on a tight budget. I come to the furst hurdle of which case to get. Id like something that is desktop SFF size but not bothered if it is amp size.

ive been looking at this one....any critics on it?…691


Power supply is a bit low powered. You would need to go for micro-atx. If you are on a really tight budget :
Personally, i would spend a bit more and get a system with 80+ psu, it will save you money in the long tern in 'leccy bills.

you don't need much power for an htpc, mines running a 120watt in a hiper case, with 4850e and ssd, 500gb sata, dvdrw and an x800 aiw
my friend has that case it is quite big so measure carefully
