It seems to me like the GTX 780 can handle pretty much anything at this point, at least on a 1920x1080 monitor. This makes me lean towards an ITX, in which case I'd go for the Sugo SG08, no questions asked.
However, I am considering upgrading to a 2560x1440 monitor in the (near)future, which seems to require an SLI/Xfire solution to be effective. At this point, mATX would be the obvious choice.
Now, I know "future proofing" is a fairly ridiculous concept, but the ability to add a second card in if necessary seems to be a much better, and cheaper, option than having to replace a single card, which further supports the mATX argument.
Unfortunately, I can't seem to find a case for mATX boards that I fall in love with. On paper, the SG10 is absolutely perfect, but I think it's hideous...okay, maybe not that bad but definitely not something I enjoy looking at.
I don't want to go much larger than the dimensions offered by the SG10, and there don't appear to be many other cases that sport the same capabilities of the SG10 while remaining a true SFF.
The only other case that I've really found to come close is the Lian-Li PC-V355, but the reviews seem a little bit conflicted and spotty.
Can anybody offer a better argument for ITX, or provide a good word for the PC-V355?
Also, are there any cases that will be out sometime soon that may fit my criteria? I know BitFenix recently revealed an mATX version of the Prodigy, but even that is a little on the large side for me.
Oh, and I prefer the cube-like chasis over the taller, tower forms (FT03 for example). Yes, I know I'm being difficult and picky, but if I'm going to make this type of investment, I'd like it to be as perfect as possible.
