Thanks for the links. The case on amazon is the same size as the itx case I was considering but costs less! Do you know if I would be able to fit my mini itx mobo in that case or would I need to get a micro atx instead?
The xcase case looks like a cheaper clone of the one from amazon. Do you know where I can find the dimensions?
This page states that Mini ITX is backwards compatible with Micro ATX. Presumably this means I could buy the Apevia X-Qpack and fit my Mini ITX mobo? The Apevia site does not mention Mini ITX compatibility.
Yes, mini-ITX motherboards are supposed to be able to fit into micro-ATX cases. There would just be two standoffs you would not use.
I notice the x-case one has a 650W PSU and the Apevia has 420W. Maybe the x-case is an upgraded version? The x-case also says it takes long cards. Not sure about the Apevia. Make sure the PSU is powerful enough for your GPU.
(1) This case on xcase seems to be the same (with a different name) as the one on Amazon (2) which according to (3) is 446mm deep which is pretty large. (4) looks like another clone but with a ridiculous fan on top. However, the reported dimensions are a bit better at 38.5cm.
(5) The Apevia looks good but is reviewed as very flimsy here (6).
I want a cube not a tower so (7) is out of the question.
(8) Gets some positive reviews and looks good but review (9) puts me off a lot as it states the reviewer could not fit in an 8800 GT which is my exact card.
