  2. You might want to watch your dimensions. I just finished a build using LANBOX Lite VF6000BNS (similar to what you are using without the handle).

    My Asus 5850 is pretty much the exact same length as a micro ATX motherboard, and the hard drive bay is very close to the edge of the board, so much so that the inch longer 5870 might not fit. If I were at home I'd take a picture to show you what I'm talking about.

    If you are only going to use 1HDD this isn't too much of an issue because you can take over one of the external drive slots for it. I'm using 2 in raid so I had to leave the bay in.

    There is a line of Thermaltake Micro ATX cases called "LanBox".
  5. they tend to run a bit hot
  6. Aertea is right about the dimensions...You sure would want to double check if the card that you select fits the case...
