    Question on Case

    Hey guys,

    This is my setup:
    Biostar M7NCG Mobo
    AMD 2400+ Processor
    Samsung 2.5" 40GB HD
    Soundblaster Audigy 5.1 Sound Card PCI
    Linksys 802.11g PCI Wireless Card
    and a DVD/CD combo drive


    I was wondering will all this fit in this case:
    Powmax Case

    Or do you guys have any suggestions, I am trying to keep it as small as I can...Thanks.

    Yeah, you'd be fine with that case. You may want to try another vendor, though... I hear it's pretty hit or miss with Tigerdirect. Although, it's not a rebate deal, so you shouldn't have any problems.

    Also, I hear that PowMax PSUs suck, but it won't work in a car, anyway.. unless you get an inverter. But get an Opus

    I already got my Opus (Modified to work with the Biostar), I figure just take that PSU out and put in the Opus. What do you think?

    I can't remember, but it was a mAtx form case, looked pretty similar. The Opus is slightly smaller than a small form fact 200w PSU

    If you want as small as you can, I recommend making one from plexi glass. You can measure the exact size you need then just glue it together with epoxy. That is what i did and it works great!
