Hey guys, my motherboard burnt out so I am going to upgrade my pc as seen in my sig...

I am debating between ATX and m-ATX... but the case is what I care about since my current case is huge for traveling and takes up a lot of room in my bedroom. I am looking for a simple, reasonably small case for easy gaming and heavy photoshoping, Maya, visual studio, etc.

I want a case that can handle normal gaming temperatures (nothing too extreme other than CS:GO and dirt racing), so it needs a good fan flow.

I am still using the same SSD, HDD, video card, and 2 ram sticks.. it'll need to fit my video card

I am a minimalist when it comes to design too.

Since you don't have much to deal with... have you thought about maybe going even smaller to m-itx... There are cases that support full length graphic cards and would be much easier to transport since apparently you take it with you on trips.

I am personally in the process of buying that Node 304. Its small but it can handle a system with a full graphic card, a single 120 aio or cpu cooler up to I think 165mm. With a GPU in there you can mount 4 HDD and a ssd or two by using some double sided tape. But you would need a PSU that fit in there without giving you troubles.
