Building HTPC Need budget case..horizontal that can fit gpu..

Hi everyone..

Ive selected a few components for a htpc/gaming pc for a living room..

1. Intel Pentium g4560
2. 1050 ti (low pro if i must)
3. Random 8gb ddr4 stick 2133
4. Random 450 ish watt psu
5. TP Link Network Adapter (for wifi)
6. MB (Unknown)

So there is 2 things I am consideringand debating on..

1. The case - I want a case as close to Console size as possible..cant figure out which one is best tho..hoping to get one cheap.
(Case must be horizontal)

2. A motherboard to go in said case and support all of the components. I could possibly live without the network card and just run a usb network adapter if I have to for m itx or w.e...would bring the price down a bit anyways.

Also..if you have any ideas to cheapen up the rig a bit I would love to hear :). The pc must be decent at streaming and running games around medium to high @ 1080 resolution.

  2. Everything looks great.. But the case isnt horizontal. Need something that will just go into an entertainment center..like a console
