    Micro ATX Horizontal Case?

    Got some old PC parts im going to strip out the current town and i want to rebuild into a smaller case and it has to be Horizontal as i want it in my entertainment unit as it will be loaded with SteamOS so can play on the big screen, But i seem to be struggling to find a cheap but half decent case to meet my requirements?

    i will need to purchase a low profile gpu i believe as the current 5950 is old and is falling apart sadly and i dont think it will fit so im hoping someone might have any recommendations. ideally looking under £50

    thanks all

    coolermaster elite 120 or 130 fit the bill? or did you want a flat htpc case (though these are normally itx)/>

    should also fit a full size gpu if you didn't want to swap right away

    I used to use a fractal core 1000 on it's side as my media pc as it has buttons and usb ports on the side panel fractal-design.com/hom…-30

    thanks ideally would prefer it to be a flat case already as they tend to be quite slim and wouldnt look out of place on my unit

    Thought that might be the case.

    Maybe look at some silverstone cases? i.e. amazon.co.uk/Sil…tpc (£55 in amazon warehouse)
