I believe it is 9.5" long, but yeah that still rules out a lot of higher end graphics cards.

So can anyone see anything wrong with the build, or would care to give a build they would recommend?
I would also like to ask about the 7800 series, which is what I plan on upgrading to when they come out. Do you think they'll be able to fit in that case?

for reference, i would suggest you take a look at this build log. it's the best and cleanest gamer grade ITX build i've seen. the parts used can be updated with the Z68 board, 2600k and 7970 and will still fit AND has more then enough power to drive the components from the powersupply.

Okay, so I'll probably be ordering this later tonight. Does anyone have any last minute suggestions?

I would, but that seems a bit out of my price range. Can you toss up an $800 mATX Asus Gene-based build?

Thanks. Do you think I should wait for the motherboard in the OP to be restocked, or should I just get this beastly (lol @ mITX & beastly) motherboard?

I'm not an expert on ITX, but those mobos seem to be the same in every way except the chipset. H67 vs. Z68 is an easy decision, going Z68 you'll lose nothing but gain lots. Z68 is the only worthwhile 1155 chipset atm imho.

Don't laugh at mITX and beastly being in the same sentence, think about a slightly overclocked 2600k with a 7970 (or 7990 when it's out) in a mITX case wink.gif

Actually im currently working on getting a i7-3770K and a HD 7990 or 690/790 into my itx build biggrin.gif. So far im able to get my 2500k to 4.6 on a h50 with a zotac itx z68, going to be doing a full watercool so hopefully next month can get it up to 5ghz. From what im guessing when its done, it should be as powerful or a bit more then my sig rig currently

but yeah you can get alot out of an itx rig, actually finding them quite interesting to fit more in and already planing on downsizing a version 2

@op, cant really see what mobo in the post a few up but i think its the zotac z68 itx, and i would say go z68 route over the h67 if its not to much more smile.gif it can oc pretty well (maybe not as far as some other full size atx but for the size very good) but you get ssd cache as well.

I was thinking of building a m-itx htpc for playing 1080p media and some light gaming and this was my list:

i3-2120
ASrock m-itx z68 ( adding some heatsinks to the vrm's)
4GB ram (2x2gb 1600mhz, the cheapest one )
Prolimatech Samuel CPU heatsink + AP14
Recycled 1TB Hitachi hdd
AMD HD6870
Silver stone Sugo ( forget the model, the one that has the 650w 80+ psu
The cheapest blu-ray drive I can find.

That was my original plan but decided to wait for Ivy and hd7870
