    cant decide on a case, need some help.

    ok im drawn between the Morex 3677 and the Morex 2699.

    i plan on having
    VIA EPIA 10000 1GHZ Nehemiah
    PW-70A micro power supply
    ITPS Auto Power Sequencer and Low Dropout Regulator
    20gig 2.5 drive
    slim dvd drive

    the 2699 is abit bigger then the 3677 and it has room for a pci card at this time i dont think ill have use for the pci slot.

    does anyone think ill have issues fitting everything into the 3677 case?

    Well, I can only speak for the 2699...i really like mine! I have a TON of stuff crammed inside of it...a 250gb hard drive, a power supply, internal usb hub with relay to fully turn off, usb 802.11, creative remote serial sensor assembly, reciever for gryation keyboard/mouse, and room for an all in wonder when I have the money VERY roomy for a small case.

    I have the 3677 case and I really like it, I have no problem fitting everything in. However, unless you NEED a case that small I would opt for the larger case for just in case reasons. Maybe you will want to get a TV card, maybe the mobos sound card won't be up to your expectations and so on. So unless you need the computer to fit somewhere where the larger case will not, go with the larger case. Thats my opinion

    PS ITPS sucks go with carnetix or opus instead, itps if you don't believe me

    well, what I recommend and what I have are 2 different things I would recommend a 90w Opus...I HAVE a pw-70 or whatever they called it at the time. Its a cheap unit and i thought it would work for me.....I learned. Still havent coughed up for the Opus though. The one nice thing with my PS is that it fits on top of the mobo...so it saves a bunch of room, which I used to pack even more stuff. A Opus may or may not fit...not for sure, but likely it would with some "customizing" hehe. {reaches for Dremel tool} ZIP ZIP Buwahahahahaha
