I'm in the process building a new windows 8 computer but I want to convert my current computer into a htpc.
My current system is a phenom II x3 710 with a Gigabyte GA-MA78GM-US2H. 4 gigs of ram and a caviar black hard drive.

I currently have a 400w corsair power supply on this pc. I want to know if I could move all of these parts into this case:

It has a 250w power supply. Would that be enough?

Sorry, but your current system has a MicroATX motherboard while the new case will only accept an ITX motherboard. Your old components will not physically fit within the case.

Looking at PCPartPicker, this Silverstone Milo ML038 for $60 is about the best I was able to find on short notice.

I'd also recommend NMediaPC HTPC cases (I'm using an older 200BA case), but I tried to keep the cost as cheap as I could.
