I find it great because I'm never worrying about the fact I have all that extra space in my case

My Antec 900 had a E6400, 4850 crossfire with a sound card and Wifi card because I hated the empity space

My TJ0E had 550TI sli and then 7870 Crossfire because of the space

Now I have just one card and yet I can still play over 3 monitors with easy and max out most things at 1080p. ITX is simple and to the point. You focus on what matters.
Well, I just about think you've just about managed to switch me over to ITX. thumb.gif Anything I should know about it? This is somewhat off-topic, but the cx500m is said to be likely compatible with Haswell. Do I take the risk and buy that? Or find another? You've been such great help to me.

Just remeber on ITX space is a luxury most of the time but since your on the Prodigy your fine. Its no different then any other case. When it comes to cards get the best you can people you only get one

The corsair powersupply is fine

Well, I've already ordered my 760, and it suits what I do. Thanks a ton. Once I finish my build, where can I post it confusedsmiley.png Also, could I, in some way, make it so that you get notified that I posted it?

Thank you so much!
I'm not trying to flood you with questions or anything, but I want to install a 200mm fan in the front. My idea is that it should pull air, and then have the rear 120 and top fans push outwards. Good idea?

Thats fine

One fan pulls air in and the other out is not a issue.

most matx cases are actually quite small too and they allow you to go sli in the future if you want. they also aren't so small that you can hardly put the thing together...
