Hi all,
I am planning to build a gaming PC. I will have to move it every once in a while, so I want it to build using a small form factor chassis. I have selected following components:
CPU : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Mobo: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
RAM: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
HDD: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Optical drive: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Graphics card: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I will decide on PSU once I get some hint on the case.

As you can see, the graphics card (Radeon 5870) is pretty long (11.1 inches) and is the main constraint while deciding for the case. I have chosen following for case options. Please suggest which will be offering best value and will comfortably fit all the above mentioned components. If you know of some other SFF cases that would be good for this card, please suggest them as well. Here are my shortlisted options:

Silverstone SG07 (Comes with Power supply) L X B X H: 13.78 x 8.74 x 7.48
Apevia X-Q Pack 2 (Comes with 500W PSU) LXBXH: 14.70" x 11.20" x 9.00"
APEx TM series
Aerocool QX-2000 LXBXH: 15.4 x 11.8 x 9.45
NZXT Vulcan LXBXH: 16.00" x 7.00" x 16.60"
Thermaltake LANBOX Lite 16.9 x 9.1 x 11.8
CM Elite 341 LXBXH: 15.75" x 7.28" x 14.37"
Silverstone TJ8 LxBxH: 14.88" x 7.68" x 15.00"
Silverstone SG02-F/SG02
LIAN LI PC-Q08B

Sugo S07 is obvious choice, but it is a bit expensive. So please give your thoughts on other options as well. :hello:

LIAN LI PC-Q08B definitely is big enough a friend has a build in it.
Fits 11.81" cards.

Thank you. BTW, which power supply and video card does your friend use? It would be really helpful.

You can use any standard size psu and pretty much any gpu.
He re-used older parts for the psu and gpu.
He built his as an HTPC since he already has a full tower i7 9xx gaming rig.

Thanks for all the info man. Looks like I will wait for a while, because Radeon 6xxx series is just around the corner and I don't want to be baffled by a price drop.
