Hey, I'm trying to figure out if my parts are compatible (mainly the PSU and the case).

Do you guys mind quickly reviewing this build?

Case - Thermaltake LANBOX mITX VF1000BWS

LCD Screen - Thermaltake Oracle 7'' Retractable

APU ($140) - ASUS E35M1 Pro

RAM x 2 ($23) - Kingston ValueRAM 2GB DDR3 1066MHz

PSU ($16) - Sunbeam BKS480 ATX 480 Watt

HDD ($60) - WD Caviar Black 500GB SATA 7200RPM

ODD ($26) - LiteOn LightScribe 24X SATA DVD+/-RW IHAS424

Yes they can fit but it doesnt look like a very capable build...might I ask what is your intended use for it?

Building a 'net top' SFF?

That Sunbeam PSU looks scary. Do you already own some of this stuff?

AstroTC: Just a regular HTPC.

WR2: No, I don't. On the Thermaltake site, it said the LANBOX accepted ATX PSII power supplies. I don't know what that is.

ATX PSII just means it takes a normal sized PSU, i would steer clear of that sunbeam it looks scary.

An Corsair 430CX actually has about twice as much power available where a modern system needs it and is much better than that sunbeam unit, it costs more but its less likely to kill a system.

I don't really mind that much noise.

I'm not sure how to wire up a mini ITX PSU like that, so I don't think I'll go for that.

I just want something that'll be relatively small and sufficient for my power needs.

Besides the AC/DC power brick being on the outside of the case it's really no different.

That Corsair 430CX hunter315 is a good choice. And after the rebate it's $25 final price is worth spending the extra over that Sunbeam PSU.
