A good mATX case can be had on sale for $30-40, with moderate assembly issues.
But will he other half accept another box?

My other half can never say no to a tech item. She has every GPS watch, fitbit item(not anymore thanks to the recall), new cell phone, tablet, imaginable.

I'm guilty of being bad too. I have no reason to build a gaming / HTPC for the living room other than, I WANT TO.

I have been going back and forth between the CM elite 130 and the corsair 250d. Not sure mITX will be what I want to do now.
Any thoughts on the beastly CM haf xb?

stumbled across the Corsair air 540.
Any thoughts about this? Might need to start a new thread.

Those other cases are cool and without watching reviews on either one, I'd say they could get your job done. BUT, the reason I picked the 250d is for its subtle and sleekness to blend right in with living room Tech, like subwoofers speakers, and other various black boxes that are typically in living rooms. Also check out the full review of the 250D, u can fit a gtx 780 and a full size power supply in the thing! Plus it can be had for only 89 Bucks here stateside last time I looked anyway. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GdzsEXr2Kq8 check out Linus review thumb.gif

250D is not out of the question. I forgot why I didn't bother mentioning. I like that one a lot.
