Is there anything I need to take into consideration? I've heard that the case's HDD cage holds the SATA connector too close to the graphics card. Also, the onboard wireless sounds like it may be a problem on the Zotac motherboard. Thanks for any compatibility help!
First: YOU ARE AWESOME FOR PLAYING MINECRAFT!
Second: Unless it is ABSOLUTELY IMPERATIVE that you need an mini-ITX MoBo and case, you shouldn't use it. The PSU is harder to find if the one on the case breaks. You should go for a Micro-ATX minimum
Third: I'm going to bet 99.999999999% that the Video card isn't going to fit in the case...
EDIT: Correction, 100% POSITIVE that the Video card isn't going to fit
Mmm.. silly me. I didn't see that. Well now I'm wondering if I should take a look at a smaller GPU solution since this is of course only a Minecraft machine. Or if i should start from scratch with a larger system.
I feel like if I build larger, I will be more inclined to waste money on unneeded parts just to fill up the extra space (I'm weird like that ). That's one of the reasons I want to build small.
Video card dimensions: 12 x 2 x 8 inches
Case dimensions: 12 x 10 x 15 inches
Houston, WE HAVE A PROBLEM
I don't know why Amazon says the card is 12x2x8. The card is a little less than 9" (8.25"). Now that I think about it, there's no way the 550 is a 12" card. The Silverstone site says the Sugo 05 can take up to 9.5" (did I just say that with a straight face???)
Actually, here's a pic with a 560 Ti in a Sugo case:
It's snug, but I think the 550 Ti will fit just fine.
