It's the silver version, but the black one I linked is identical

Here's the silver one on NCIX:

Yes thats pretty compact however the case you selected isnt all to bad however not 100% sure on the airflow you will get. You may want to get a case nearer a full ATX if possible.

Antec P180 is good (see sig)

the multi chamber design is excellent, making the case seem somewhat smaller than it is (work space in upper chamber is a bit small). Airflow is good, esp. after a few easy mods (remove upper chamber HDD bracket, move some fans around). Cable management is a royal pain in the behind.

Once set up, it's great. Quiet and good temps.

Antec TPII? He'll be fine. I had that PSU with the P180 and an ASUS P4P800-SE. No problem.

I second the motion. I had a P180 with the same TP550 PSU and the P4 4-pin power is long enough for an A8N-SLI. I had to snake it along the back next to the PCI slots though. If you want a smaller Antec case (Sonata Sized), look at the SOLO, its a P150 in black and silver without a PSU. It also rotates the HD caddy inline with airflow unlike the Sonata, and has dual 92mm front intake fan mounting locations (no fans included). I had a Sonata once and I loved that case, I thought I needed more room hence P180, but now I miss the Sonata and the P180 sits empty at the moment.
