All I can tell you is get VERY exact measurements before you buy anything. I just did a similar build and planning was everything. You will definitely have to do some case modding to get everything to fit nicely, but with some patience it can be done.

My build thread (ongoing) is here in case you want to take a look at what I had to do. My case is 14x11x10 which is only slightly larger than the one you linked and I was very hard pressed to find a rad that would fit fully inside the case.

Ensure you have an adequate PSU, that 300w is never going to run those things you listed. Most ITX cases don't have the capability to run a PSU big enough to power a 580 so you're looking into mATX land.

Anyway, its challenging but fun so enjoy your build. Remember, measure twice and cut once especially when you plan out your loop biggrin.gif

Heres the newegg page: PC-V351

There are better small cases but its what I had (the 351 is a few years old design). I was just posting it to show you it can be done with something that size so just plan carefully.
