First off sorry if this is in the wrong place but i ordered a case that was a mid atx thinking that it would work for me but its just too big for what im going for. ill list my build and ask you guys what you thing a good size case would be. Im going for a HTPC/gaming build and will be doing some light oc'ing so i want to have a safe amount of airflow.... and my budget is only around $75.

mobo - Biostar a880g+

cpu - AMD athlon II x3 455

Ram - amd 4gb 240-pin ddr3 two sticks

gpu- PNY Geforce GTX 550 TI ddr5 (any cheaper gpu with same preformance?)

Blu Ray Asus 12x

heat sink - XIGMATEK Gaia SD1283 120mm

Are you talking about the Lanbox Lite from Newegg? They will accept it back as per their standard return policy: http://www.newegg.com/HelpInfo/ReturnPolicy.aspx#44

I just sold my Lanbox Lite on ebay. I had an HD 6870 and a 550W modular PSU in it along with a mATX board, optical drive, and HDD. The 3 small fans are fairly quiet and move enough air to keep a stock processor cool. The case is so modular, it makes it really easy to assemble. You can find some reviews here:
