I'm building a 2nd computer, mostly for LAN play .. I don't want to spend a lot of money, this system I spec'ed off "Canada Computers" website is using oldish components, the only item I bumped up was the graphics card a little bit. I want this computer to be able to run GTA IV / SR3 / BF3 / BO2 / BL2.. SC2.. lol.. on highish settings with decent framerate (30 fps) and Rift near max. I've never used a mini-itx case and its more so because I want this computer to be tucked away. I have no idea if the power supply is adequate and compaitable with the case. Also not 100% about the mobo and HD compaitability but assume its backwards compaitable.
Any help would be really appreciated!!!

I think, for 40 bucks more, you can do much better with a Core i5 +7850 combo. This build also includes 8GB of ram..
