    Take a look at his build with silvers tone case. It take standard video card and coolers and power supply and is small. On silverstone page they also have a mini ft-03 now in black and white.
  2. For mini-ITX, I'll profess to be a fan of the Bitfenix Prodigy which although not a typical HTPC type case does accept standard ATX PSU's (up to 160mm length) and has room for even the most aggressive of air coolers - this vid by Bitfenix may be helpful http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cKIsrwS3fX4 to explain the case and building in it

    I've come across this case: http://www.amazon.com/Universal-Mini-ITX-enclosure-PicoPSU-compatible/dp/B003DXI288/ref=cm_cr_pr_pb_t ,It says 65 watts TDP but it has got dual 40mm fan mounts.

    Would you reckon tdp wise the case will support the APU?
  6. As long as you use a good cooler and the case has good airflow you should be fine.

    As for PSU, What sort of wattage do I need for the APU + an SSD + (Still Deciding - Standard HDD)?

    I will be running the APU at default stock and want to perhaps be able to support a dedicated gpu in the future?
  8. 430 w should be overkill if your thinking of adding a gpu use a 600w unit.

    My problem being that I'm trying to keep it compact enough to fit in a Mini ITX Case.
  10. Wait if I was to sell my old gaming rig in order to fund this pc as have a new gaming rig. My old gaming rigs specifications are: CPU: Phenom X4 9550, 4GB 800Mhz DDR2, Astek Motherboard with 4 DDR2 Slots and 1x PCIE X 16, 2x PCI Slots, Mid Tower Clear Side with Blue Leds, 2x 120mm, 1x 80mm. How much you reckon I'd get for them specifications in pounds if I was to sell the pc whole?
  11. What do you think about the case and will the psu that comes with it be alright?
