Will this fit in Prodigy M case?

Hi guys. this will be my build soon. I'm new in PC building. Will this build fit in Prodigy M? If not, do you have any suggestions for another case? I want something fancy. I saw some forums and some said that gpu or psu might be a problem (won't fit) for Prodigy M. I saw one Prodigy M in newegg for 99usd. My budget is around 100usd. Please help me.

Processor: i5-4440
Motherboard: Gigabyte H81M-DS2
Hard Disk: Samsung 500gb hdd
RAM: 2 x 4gb ddr3-1300mhz
PSU: Corsair VS450 450w / Cooler master elite v2 550watts
GPU : GeForce GTX 750ti
DVD Rom

Thanks in advance.

  1. No matter what it will no fit. The mobo is a micro ATX whereas the case only fits a mini ATX.

    Go on PCPartPicker to get a good deal and build the best for a budget.

    really? because I saw in their website that this case will support mATX motherboards. i think what you mean is the Prodigy case (not Prodigy M).

    I saw the one on some other online shopping website. But if you know you saw it and it will fit then. Everything will be fine. But if you plan to save some money, I recommend going in PCPartPicker.

    Go with the 550W but to plan for the future go for 600W. Feel free to PM me if anything goes wrong.

  8. Three points -

    1) mini ATX isn't really a thing. It exists, but it's not widely adopted or used in conventional home builds. It's occasionally used inadvertently to mean the same as mATX.
    mATX is the easier reference for micro-ATX (µATX), this is what can fit in a Prodigy M.
    mini-ITX basically the smallest mainstream board, this is what an original (ITX) Prodigy takes.

    2) An i5+GTX750TI build doesn't need much power. It's likely you can run this on sub 300W, but quality PSUs only tend to start at 430/450W so this isn't a bad option. More significant than the capacity in this case is the quality - neither the Corsair VS or Coolermaster Elite V2 are very good. I can't really suggest anything specific as I don't know where you are - the Corsair VS means you aren't in the US. As a general rule XFX, Seasonic and most Antecs are good.

    3) The Prodigy M isn't a great choice. It's not a very good case for any build imo. The comments you've found referencing cards which may or may not fit are related to the fact that the PSU extends into the same area as the graphics card - meaning only one can be particularly large, Given you only have a GTX750TI, this isn't a problem, but it's symptomatic of a poor layout. If you want a Prodigy - get an ITX Prodigy and swap your motherboard for an ITX H81 - it's not going to make much of a cost difference.
    If you prefer to stick with mATX, then I'd suggest looking at the Fractal Design Arc Mini, though there's a big argument here for going (much) cheaper on the case and putting more money into the parts that need it (like the PSU).
