But that's a tonymacx86 custom build. I got it from their website so I'm pretty sure it'll fit everything in!

I'll get the PSU you suggested James, thanks!

Also, leaving the case aside, is it good enough for the functions I mentioned?

Haha that's alright :) 

Thanks for the PSU!

So, it's good enough as a download machine, htpc and 1080p streaming?

It should do all those tasks quite well, especially considering that the board was targeted towards the miniITX gaming market.

Can you give it a final rating? I changed the case, took a bit larger one! PSU built in. (conveniently found in the tonymacx86 forums!)

upgraded the processor a tiny bit!
