    I want to make a small form factor build.

    I'm having some trouble finding a case. I've been looking at SILVERSTONE SUGO SG02-BF Black ABS / SECC Steel Mi... as an enclosure.

    What I'm looking for exactly is a small case, in landscape format (not portrait). It'll be for playing games and stuff, so it'll have to have some airflow. I'd prefer stuff that isn't blinged out, too. I have a 750W Seasonic PSU, btw.

    On top of a case, I need a motherboard and a cooler. The CPU is AM3. Budget for it all should be <$300, but I can exceed it for the right things.. The GPU is a tossup between 6870 and GTX460, both can be used.

    Tips? Pointers? This'll be my first SFF build.

    landscape? for htpc, there many cases on that
    like http://casegear.blogspot.com/search/label/htpc
    but when you take small form like htpc stuff, it would limited on air flow, coz most of htpc used only for light usage like daily use and multi media things :D

    Myself, erocker and brandonwh64 have all used/ still own this case. It's really nice for what you get.

    A modular psu with that case is really good, but can be used with standard.
