Hello,

I wanna build a mini-itx configuration very very portable,because i will need to move and carry my computer alot of times,i have decided all the componentes already but case is kiling me.

I actually like the cases Lian Li Q08 and Silverstone SG09, but both are very expensive, there is any case on market like those with prices like 65€ with gaming perfomance compromise?

The build will be:
i5-3470
HD7850
8gb 1600Mhz
120gb SSD

I only need the smallest case possible with reasonable price to fit all these components with perfomance (i wont upgrade this in the next 3 years, so i dont bother about it).

Thank you alot!!

Its a bit big for a mITX case, but the Bitfenix Prodigy is pretty portable. I think its around 65€.

I suggested it cause:
1. Portability (has 2 large flex handle on top and bottom for carrying.
2. Open interior for airflow and larger components.
3. Ease of repair (moving computers can be risky business)
4. Cable management is pretty easy with the case if you get a small PSU.
5. Decent build quality.

It isn't a bad case in any way, its larger than a traditional mITX case for sure. But it also allows you to basically build anything you want into the case. I've seem some crazy liquid cooling builds in a Prodigy. Also you can fit larger radiators in the prodigy, for better OC'ing of your CPU. The prodigy can hold full sized graphics cards as well. I've seen several fitted with GTX690's with little effort.

That said, you were asking for recommendations on a budget. The Prodigy is fairely inexpensive and has a decent following because it allows for a lot of flexibility. I'm sorry if my suggestion upset, disappointed, or frustrated you.
