Hey all, been considering building a mini-itx system just cause. I dont game much anymore, mostly just watching vids (Hd rips, anime, etc) so i thought a small, low power solution is more suited to me.

I was thinking about building a system based around the E-350 fusion CPU cause its cheap and can do what I need to do (I think?)
The only E-350 mobo on newegg right now is one from sapphire, the fusion mini. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
Tryin to find a good mini-itx case to go with it that can fit a decent number of hard drives without being too big.

Silverstone Sugo SG05 seems to be a decent case, along with a few from lian li.

Parts I have picked out:
mobo+cpu: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
ram: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Cant decide on the rest of the components cause some cases come with PSUs, some bigger itx cases dont, and some itx cases only accept 2.5" HHDs. Any help is welcome, thanks!

By the way, theres no budget

Silverstone's Sugo cases are very popular, but tend to be a bit pricey. Since budgeting isn't a concern for you, it should work well. The SG07 (I believe) can even fit some full size GPUs.

pretty much nothing else. No need for a case big enough for a discrete gpu. I'll put as many hard drives as I can fit, and possibly a sound card a bit later.
