I have an entertainment center that looks like this.

The space for my case is:
depth:16 inches
width: 20 inches
height: 7inches

I am looking at a micro-atx mobo.

I bought a couple of fans to mount to the back of the entertainment center.

I'm looking for a small case.

Searching these forums, I am leaning towards this one:
small case.

Any other suggestions?

build your own, maf partical board with some nice black paint, you can build it to fit right in there and make it blend in with the color of your cabnet if you want to.

If you don't need a front Firewire port you can save $10 by looking at the SilverStone Grandia GD05 HTPC Case

For a low profile, low power build: hec Micro ATX Media Center / HTPC Case & 300W TFX PSU $60 might be worth looking at. Read the NewEgg customer reviews.

Thanks WR2. I bought the silverstone grandia gd05 HTPC. It is a very nice case. Also, put a fan in the tv stand itself, so it has some good ventilation. heat has not been an issue as of yet...

A tv stands may look like it is the right size in a picture or even in a showroom, but until you bring it into your home, you won't really know if it's proportionate to the room.
